Since the last century, ceramics have become essential to modern society and our daily lives. They have become an indispensable product to many industries, especially within the fields of electronics, automobiles, medicine, and leisure. Japanese ceramic technologies and products are highly sophisticated and world renown, and ceramic products have long contributed to Japanese society. The true significance of ceramics to modern society however, is not well understood. This book describes in detail the background to and objective of the development, materials, manufacturing processes, functions and future prospects of a number of ceramic products. Not merely about the science and technology of ceramic manufacturing, the book is about the products themselves, as it tries to clarify how ceramics continue to contribute to our lives. It is the first such work to show advanced ceramic products in detail, from the technologies used to their application, and can be seen as a kind of illustrated reference book for modern advanced ceramic products as it is filled with easy-to-understand illustrations and photos. By including past and current product technologies, the editors hope the book will serve to guide engineers and the manufacturing sector toward a bright future of innovations for the benefit of us all.
