Journal of Advanced Ceramics is a peer-reviewed international journal publishing the results of theoretical and experimental studies related to the processing, structure and properties of advanced ceramics and ceramic-based composites. Papers on all aspects of the science of advanced ceramics are included, such as
Processing: powder preparation and characterization; colloidal science; novel forming and sintering technologies; pattering, templates and self-assembly; large scale/ complicated shape processing; hybrid processes, co-firing of metals and ceramics; etc.
Structure characterization: analytical; microscopy; scanning probes; nanoscopic; optical; electrical; magnetic; acoustic; spectroscopic; diffraction; etc.
Properties: mechanical; electrical; ferroelectric; thermal; optical; magnetic; interfacial; transport; thermodynamic; etc.
Advanced materials: ultra high temperature materials; transparent ceramics; lead-free piezoelectrics; ferroelectrics, ferromagnetics and multiferroics; solid oxide fuel cells; advanced ceramic thermal and environmental coatings; nanostructured ceramics; advanced bio- and bio-active ceramics; etc.
Basic sciences: defects; diffusion; phase transformation; phase equilibrium; thermodynamics; kinetics; chemical; thermal stability; etc.
The journal starts from March 2012, and now is a quarterly journal co-published by Tsinghua University Press and Springer-Verlag. It devotes to build an international platform for the researchers of advanced ceramics by spreading high quality information and innovative viewpoints around the world.
