PFC’s schedule of upcoming trade shows and the latest ceramic news within the industry.
Ceramics have strong bonds between their atoms—unlike metals, in which the electrons in those bonds have more freedom to move around. This gives ceramics high melting points, permitting them to be deployed in hot circumstances. New [...]
Ceramic implant material developed at UC Riverside will expand the use of ultrasound to treat brain disorders and cancers Ultrasound brain surgery has enormous potential for the treatment of neurological diseases and cancers, but getting [...]
Advanced Ceramics in Defense: Ceramic composite armor materials are currently being investigated by researchers to take advantage of the potential for improved performance and reduced weight. Within the defense industry, advanced ceramics are at the heart of [...]
Single-element ceramic transducers are often the most cost-effective option for signal generation and sensing applications, while multiple ceramic element transducers are best-suited for high power or large displacement applications. In general terms, transduction refers to [...]
Engineered advanced ceramics enable clean, consistent wafer processing, front-end semiconductor fabrication, and back-end chip packaging. Perhaps the most impactful invention in modern history, the transistor is at the core of semiconductor devices. It has dramatically transformed virtually [...]
Scientists have managed to create a new multi-layered ceramic material with heat resistance of the upper layer exceeding 3,000 degrees Celsius. High temperature ceramics are ideal for the manufacture of aircraft engines. Physicists and technicians of the [...]
