PROCESSING OF CERAMICSA firsthand account of the “transparent ceramics revolution” from one of the pioneers in the fieldProcessing of Ceramics: Breakthroughs in Optical Materials is an in-depth survey of the breakthrough research and development of transparent ceramics, covering historical background, theory, manufacturing processes, and applications. Written by an internationally-recognized leader in the technology, this authoritative volume describes advances in optical grade ceramics over the past three decades—from the author’s first demonstration of laser ceramics in Japan in 1991 to new applications of transparent ceramics such as ceramic jewels, wireless heating elements, and mobile device displays.The author provides numerous development examples of laser ceramics, crystal and ceramic scintillators, magneto-optic transparent ceramics, optical ceramic phosphors for solid state lighting, and more. Detailed chapters cover topics such as the technical problems of conventional translucent and transparent ceramics, the characteristics of scintillation materials, single crystal and ceramic scintillator fabrication and optimization, and solid-state crystal growth (SSCG) methods for single crystal ceramics.Processing of Ceramics:Outlines the author’s 30 years of work in the area of transparent ceramicsProvides a detailed history of the world's first ceramic laser developmentDemonstrates how laser oscillation using ceramic materials match or surpass high-quality single crystalsDescribes how innovative polycrystalline ceramics have transformed optical material developmentIncludes extensive references, chapter introductions and summaries, and numerous graphs, tables, diagrams, and color imagesProcessing of Ceramics is an invaluable resource for researchers, materials scientists, engineers, and other professionals across academic and industrial fields involved in the development and application of optical grade ceramics.
