Along with metals and polymers, advanced ceramics and their ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are one of the most promising classes of materials for the key technologies of the 21st century. Recent developments in this active field have resulted in a number of new synthesis, processing and sintering techniques for the production of novel structural and functional ceramics and CMCs. Significant progress has also been made in the past two decades in the production of novel multifunctional ceramics with a tailor-made micro- and/or nanoscale structures to respond to the increasing technological demand for advanced ceramics and their CMCs. In particular, condensed achievements have been obtained in these two areas: (1) strucrual applications—oxidation and corrosion of ceramics, thermal barrier coatings, ceramic filters and membranes, high-temperature engineering ceramics, advanced ceramic glow plugs, nanosized and nanostructured ard and superhard materials and coating, polymer-derived amorphous ceramics and CMCs; (2) functional applciations—microwave ceramics, ceramic fuel cells, nitridosilicates and oxonitridosilicates from ceramic materials to structural and functional diversity, ceramic lighting, ceramic sensors, oxides for Li intercalation and Li-ion batteries, magnetic ceramics.
This Special Issue aims to cover the recent research work on advanced ceramic materials and their CMCs with taliored structral and/or functional properties, so as to provide an insight into the current state and future prospects of this field. Topics can include, but are not limited to, the following:
- New methods or techniques for the systhesis of advanced ceramics and their CMCs;
- Novel shape-forming techniques;
- Sintering/densification techniques and mechanisms;
- Strengthening and toughnening;
- Characterization of structural heterogeneity or homogeneity at the nanoscale, macroscopic scale;
- Mechanical, thermal, chemical, dielectric, magnetic properties;
- Theoretical simulation methods including thermodynamic simulation, molecular dynamic simulation, Monte Carlo simulation and first-principles density functional calculation, etc;
- The thermodynamics and kinetics of the oxidation and corrosion reactions with the aim of describing the current capability to predict the rate of material degradation;
- Mechanical fatigue under harsh conditions;
- 3D printing;
- Ceramic based sensors;
- Applications of advanced ceramics and their CMCs.
It is my great pleasure to invite colleagues to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews on any aspect of advanced ceramics and their CMCs are all welcome.
