"This handbook contains extensive amounts of data and property information on a broad range of advanced ceramic materials along with a variety of applications. It is primarily a handbook for those working with new cutting edge ceramic materials and processing technologies rather than traditional ceramics, since its focus is on certain types of non-traditional materials."--IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, March-April 2014 "Coverage encompasses methods for characterization; carbons, non-oxide ceramics; ceramics related to energy generation and storage, optical applications, bio- and medical applications, combustion engine parts, and fracture mechanics; the science and technology of coating; and processing and related materials."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
