Ceramic, Electronic and Optical Materials

The study of Ceramic materials and their properties is an important part of material science. It is a non-metallic and inorganic compound. The word ceramics comes from a Greek word "Keramos" or "Ceramos" that means burnt earth or burnt clay which is directed to the word pottery. Ceramic is used in so many fields including electrical, aerospace and making exceptionally hard and high-performance cutting tools, electronics and many more. Silicon dioxide is used in making microchip i.e integrated circuit; to make the nose cones heat-protective on space rockets, lithium-silicon oxide is used. Piezoelectric materials, Barium Titanate (BaTiO3) and semiconductor materials are utterly used for the production of oscillators, vibrators, temperature sensors, ceramic capacitors, etc in the field of electronic and electrical industries.  Today when we speak of optical material we indirectly indicate to the optoelectronic uses, from medical diagnostics to information technology to molecular electronics and power generation research in optoelectronics at Penn state range.
