Abstract:

Chemical processing of ceramics has drawn considerable attention in recent years. This is mainly due to the realization that by controlling the structures, surfaces, and interfaces of materials at the molecular level, one can achieve high performance ceramic components or devices, in the earliest stages of processing. Exploratory, experimental, and analytical investigations have been conducted on the following subjects through chemical processing synthesis and application of organosilicon polymers, sol-gel processing of multi-component metal oxide systems, and chemical processing of high temperature oxide superconductors. Summarized are major findings and the most recent and relevant additional results have also been included in this report. In addition to these, a number of publications have resulted from these investigations and are attached in the Appendix. Keywords Thin films Superconductors.
