5.1   Introduction

In the manufacture of advanced ceramics, chemical composition and microstructure are specified to optimize the mechanical, electrical, dielectric, optical, thermal, physical, or magnetic properties of the finished product for a given application. The optimum properties are achieved by defining and developing processes to produce the target microstructure, and by controlling processing to minimizing the concentration (i.e., number) and scale (i.e., size) of the defects in the finished product. The tolerance of a finished ceramic product to defects determines the degree of ...
