Aims and scope
Journal of Advanced Ceramics is a peer-reviewed, international journal published under the brand SpringerOpen on behalf of the State Key Laboratory of New Ceramics and Fine Processing (Tsinghua University) and the Advanced Ceramics Division of the Chinese Ceramic Society.
Journal of Advanced Ceramics publishes 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 advance ceramics are welcome, including, but are not limited to, a variety of topics 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: such as 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.
