Advanced ZrO2-Based Ceramic Nanocomposites for Optical and Other Engineering Applications

Abstract

Although the traditional ceramics cover the major production of ceramic industries (in terms of volume as well as the selling price), a variety of new ceramics has been immersing progressively with better properties and performances. The chapter addresses zirconia and its nanocomposites, and their performances in thermal and chemical barrier coating, buffer layer for high temperature superconducting films, ball heads for hip replacements, and automobiles. Specific applications include optical systems and devices, optoelectronics, optical waveguides, optical data storage systems, optical communications, optical displays, and series of optical and/or biological sensors.
