Abstract:

The intrinsic task of this contract was to perform research to obtain fundamental insights into the mechanical and electrical properties of ceramics. The specific items in the statement of work are necessary steps that had to be completed in order to reach the goal of obtaining fundamental insights. In this final report, five topics will be discussed in detail Fracture of ceramics, Computer modelling of ceramics containing ordered voids, Interaction of dislocations with planar free surfaces, Application of superconducting ceramics to microwave substrates, High Tc superconducting ceramic oxides.
