Advanced Materials and Ceramics

The field of advanced materials includes engineered and advanced fibers such as carbon, kevlar and sapphire, metal matrix, structural, ceramic composites, other types of composites, high temperature, specialty adhesive, specialty chemicals, powder metals, thin films and surface engineering. A non-metallic solid material comprising an inorganic compound of metalloid atoms held in ionic and covalent bonds is called ceramic. The crystalline property of ceramic materials ranges from highly oriented to semi-crystalline, vitrified, and often completely amorphous like glasses. Most of the ceramic materials are good thermal and electrical insulators due to their varying crystalline property.

The inter discipline advanced materials has been emerged from the fusion of chemistry, physics, nanotechnology, ceramics, metallurgy, and biomaterials. Advanced materials can be defined as all new materials that can be modified to existing materials to obtain superior performance in one or more characteristics that are critical for the application under consideration. A ceramic refers to a non-metallic solid material comprising an inorganic compound of metal, non-metal or metalloid atoms primarily held in ionic and covalent bonds. Cutting-edge applications of advanced materials include carbon nanotubes, new types of X-ray tubes, new techniques of manufacturing Teflon and medical biopsies.
