Electroceramics are playing an incresingly important role in many key technologies including communications energy electronic packaging and automation. This derives from their versatility in properties: insulating to metallic and fast ion conductivity piezo- ferro- and pyro-electricity electro- and nonlinear optical properties ferromagnetism These when combined with thermal mechanical and chemical stability in aggressive environments often render them the only viable materials choice. The performance of electroceramic materials depends on a complex interplay between processing chemistry and structure. For the first time Journal of Electroceramics provides a forum of discussion cutting across issues in electrical optical and magnetic ceramics. Driven by the need for miniaturization cost and enhanced functionality the field of electroceramics is poised for rapid growth in many new directions. The journal will encourage discussions of resultant trends concerning silicon-electroceramic integration nanotechnology ceramic-polymer composites grain boundary and defect engineering etc. Journal of Electroceramics will publish original research papers on both scientific and technical aspects of electroceramics. On a timely basis invited papers will be featured on recent progress and future trends in the various subfields. Papers dealing with processing characterization structure properties modeling and performance of electroceramics are welcome. This includes but is not limited to the areas of: ionic and mixed conductors actuators and sensors boundary controlled devices electronic packaging dielectrics optoelectronics magnetic recording superconductivity
