Scope Alumina ceramics form a group of technically important materials that are used in a broad range of applications. Alumina is the best known and most widely used fine-grained technical ceramic, with excellent properties for mechanical strength, electrical insulation, wear resistance, temperature resistance and chemical resistance. While alumina ceramics have been used commercially for over 80 years, innovative alumina technology continues to meet new challenges. In fact, through advances in raw materials and processing, increased performance of alumina ceramics is enabling future technology. The purpose of this symposium is to provide a common forum for engineers, scientists, researchers and manufacturers to discuss the full spectrum of alumina ceramic materials.
Topical areas include but are not limited to:
- Properties of alumina (electrical, mechanical, chemical, thermal, optical)
- Advanced processing of alumina ceramics (colloidal processing, powder processing, shape forming, 3D printing, sintering)
- Transitioning new alumina technologies into production
- Alumina for optical applications (transparent alumina, sapphire, optical devices, LEDs, protective covers for device screens)
- Energy applications
- Environmental applications
- Biological, medical and dental applications
- Nano alumina
- Advances in the fundamental understanding of the science of alumina
- The future of alumina raw materials
- Alumina as an enabling technology
- Alumina composites
- Alumina coatings
