About this Research Topic
This new Research Topic will explore the recent scientific developments of advanced ceramic materials and their applications to novel sensor technologies. Insights into novel chemical and physical phenomena for the ceramic materials synthesis and processing will be key in highlighting improved real-world applications.
The goal of this Research Topic is to promote new experimental and theoretical research on the advanced ceramic materials and composites that are being increasingly prevalent in sensor applications. The interaction, affect and measurement of physical properties such as temperature, resistance, capacitance, conduction, and heat transfer are all key areas to be looked at. In particular, many advanced ceramics and composites are especially useful for sensors based on temperature, proximity, IR, light, ultrasonic, color, and humidity to name but a few. It is our aim through the approach of this Research Topic to compile a versatile range of sensor applications of advanced ceramics.
The aim of the current Research Topic is to cover promising, recent, and novel research in advanced ceramic materials with a focus on sensor applications in a range of industries. Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:
• Novel synthesis of advanced ceramics for sensor-based applications
• Insights into the effect of ceramics on sensor mechanisms
• Novel synthesis glass ceramics, ceramic composites, and ceramic polymer composites
• Characterization methods of advanced ceramics
• Optimization of the physical properties of advanced ceramics
• Ceramic-based sensors for industrial applications
Keywords: advanced ceramics, ceramic composites, nanoparticles, electroceramics, electromagnetic materials, sensors
