Ceramics Division FY 2000 Programs and Accomplishments
Stephen W. Freiman, S J. Dapkunas
The mission of the Ceramics Division is: Work with industry, standards bodies, academia, and other government agencies in providing the leadership for the Nation's measurements and standards infrastructure for ceramic materials. The range of ceramic materials on which we work is broad, ranging from oxides and nitrides to materials resembling semiconductors, pertinent to a wide spectrum of important applications. Ceramics in the broadest sense are cruicial to many modern technologies including wireless communication, photonics, and biomaterials. Ceramics are used in components, not just as monolithic parts, but as films, coatings, or single crystals. Throughout this range of materials, there are common measurement issues, e.g., phase identification, the role of microstrucuture on properties, brittle material design, and many others.
