Abstract:

This conference was held from 29 July to 2 August, 1991, at the Holderness School in Plymouth, New Hampshire. The topics discussed included how to achieve super-responses in ceramic materials by engineering of structural instabilities, spin-glass models of relaxor ferroelectrics, engineering of super-tough ceramics in zirconias, smart materials and structures, engineering and modelling of ferroelectrics for high strain actuators, small particle size effects in ferroelectrics, ferroelectric thin films for memory and optical applications, processing and properties of nanophase ceramics, microstructure- property relationships in ceramic superconductors and fundamental aspects of phase transformations in ceramics.
