Abstract:

Methods of processing nanometer scale ceramics for use in structural and optoelectronic applications have been developed. Colloidal processing of fine scale ceramic powders was used because such an approach represents the most feasible processing methodology for the production of of large scale devices and components. The project consists of two primary task areas 1 fundamental studies in synthesis and processing and 2 the processing and properties of ceramic matrix composite. For task one, the emphasis has been on the basic science of the synthesis and use of nanometer size particles. Task two, on the other hand, has been on the application of colloidal methods to the production of ceramic matrix composites for use in engineering applications. This project began at the University of Washington and was continued at Princeton University. Nanodesigned multifunctional ceramics, Ceramic processing, Colloidal processing.
