High temperature embrittlement of ceramic matrix composites - interface effects (J.L. Cocking). Multilayer ceramic capacitors with nickel electrodes (H. Kishi, N. Yamaoka). Corrosion properties of ion plated TiN and CrN coatings (H. Ichimura, A. Kawana). Direct energy conversion in single gas mixture by an oxide solid electrolyte electrochemical cell and its applications in multi-gas sensing (D.Y. Wang). Trends of research on ceramic interfaces (J. Nowotny). Subject Index.


This collection of papers arose from the Proceedings of the International Workshop on Interfaces of Ceramic Materials held in Australia, 1993 and is a continuation of the previous book published under the same title. The objective of the Workshop was to discuss research progress on the chemistry of ceramic interfaces and related industrial aspects. Due to the multidisciplinary character of ceramic interfaces the book contains articles covering several areas of expertise, including ceramics, surface science, solid state electrochemistry, metallurgy and high temperature chemistry. Some technical papers are also included in this volume.

Scientists and engineers working in these areas, as well as students in materials science and engineering, will find this book of particular significance.
