Keynote Address: Equilibria and Transport in Ceramic Oxide Interfaces
The oxide ceramics are important technologically and conform reasonably well to the ideal model of an ionic solid. Even in the simplest case, they should be regarded as binary chemical systems in which the chemical potentials of the components are determined by the oxygen potential of the environment, as well as by the temperature. The properties of typical oxide systems at interfaces, such as vaporization, segregation, electrical and material transport, are discussed in relation to this binary nature. The differences and similarities between ceramic systems and elementary metallic systems in this respect are outlined also.
