S1: Advanced Characterization and Modeling of Ceramic Interfaces



Advances in understanding the role of grain boundaries and interfaces in ceramics have led to the design of ceramics for unique applications in energy, aerospace, nuclear, automotive, military and medical fields. Recent progress in characterization and computational materials science have significantly enhanced the optimization and the design of interfaces in new ceramic materials and devices. This symposium will focus on the forefront of characterization, design, and modeling of ceramic interfaces for facilitating the design of new ceramics with tailored properties. Relevant papers will cover a broader field of ceramic interfaces from grain boundaries, domain boundaries, surfaces and heterointerfaces, which are key to control materials properties.


Proposed Symposium Topics

  • Characterization and modeling of surfaces, interfaces and grain boundaries in ceramics
  • Electronic conduction across/along ceramic interfaces
  • Enhanced interface ionic conductivity in electrolytes
  • Interface characterization, design and modeling in ferroic materials
  • Prediction/simulation of interface properties for advanced ceramics
  • Materials design for extreme environments, including applications for ultrahigh temperature, environmental and thermal barrier coatings
  • High toughness and fracture resistant ceramics at room temperature
  • Creep resistant ceramics at high temperatures
  • Simulation/characterization of interface behavior at high-temperatures
