“Fine ceramics” – a.k.a. advanced ceramics – gets a great boost from a new website launched by Kyocera. If you are expecting an ad blitz from the company, think again. Yes, there are some links to the company’s applications, but  Fine Ceramics World is almost entirely about the ABCs and XYZs of cutting-edge ceramic technology. It really seems to excel in providing both basics and advanced technical information, and offers excellent illustrations, processing work-flow charts, animations and accurate data. Hopefully this will evolve into a growing repository of advanced ceramic knowledge. The site is offered in both Japanese and English versions.
