Acoustic detection method may identify early cracks in ceramic capacitors and beyond

By April Gocha / March 24, 2016

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology may be on to something that can help with better monitoring of ceramic capacitors—they have devised a new nondestructive method that may be able to detect cracks in materials before they lead to device failure.

Swiss group unveils ultrathin, transparent and flexible ceramic foils

By / August 5, 2010

Ultrathin ceramic foils can now be (a) transparent, exhibit (b) interference colors and be (c) flexible.Credit: Bonderer, Chen, Kocher and Gauckler; JACerS. If you are like me, ceramic isn’t the first material that pops into my mind when you hear the word “foil.” But, a quartet of researchers from ETH Zurich’s Department of Materials say…
