Abstract : Advanced ceramics and ceramic matrix composites play an increasingly important role in complex systems for structural, electronic, magnetic, and optical applications. This trend is expected to continue along with a specific goal to tailor composites that display spatial resolution in the micrometer and nanometer range. The fabrication techniques being used range from consolidation of submicron-sized powders to vapor phase deposition. The objective of this symposium was to review the progress made in the field and to identify the remaining critical issues to be solved through innovative processing approaches to improve the properties and reliability of advanced ceramics. In addition, this symposium was intended to complement the series of MRS symposia on Better Ceramics Through Chemistry from a physics and engineering point of view: powder synthesis and colloidial processing; sol-gel processing and ceramic/polymer composites; sol-gel processing of thin films and electronic ceramics; plasma- assisted processing and novel composites; fiber and whisker-reinforced composites.
