7.1   Introduction

Regardless of whether the application is structural, electronic, optical, or refractory, the performance of a given ceramic material is intimately linked to its microstructure. The arrangement of phases, interfaces, and defects on the microscopic and submicroscopic scale governs a wide range of properties, including everything from fracture toughness to superconducting current densities. This chapter presents an introduction to the microstructural features that are of interest ...
