Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MAX phases are a new class of materials that exhibit a unique combination of characteristics of both ceramics and metals.  MAX phases are nano-layered ceramics with the general formula Mn+1AXn where "M" is an early transition metal, "A" is a group-A element and "X" is either carbon or nitrogen.  Similar to ceramics, they possess low density, low thermal expansion coefficient, high modulus and high strength, and good high temperature oxidation resistance.  Like metals, they are good electrical and thermal conductors, readily machinable, tolerant to damage and resistant to thermal shock.

I.M. Low has compiled 15 peer-reviewed chapters, written by leading researchers of international recognition on MAX phases.   The contributors discuss synthesis, characterization, modeling, microstructures, properties, ab-initio calculations and applications of MAS phases and targets the continuing research of advanced metals and ceramics.

Synopsis:

This book presents a comprehensive review of synthesis, microstructures, properties, ab-initio calculations and applications of MAX phases and targets the continuing research of advanced materials and ceramics. An overview of the current status, future directions, challenges and opportunities of MAX phases that exhibit some of the best attributes of metals and ceramics is included.

About the Author

Professor I. M. Low is the current WA Branch President and Federal Secretary of the Australian Ceramic Society. Since 2008, he has served on the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Australian Society. He is the recipient of the prestigious 1996 Joint Australasian Ceramic Society/Ceramic Society of Japan Ceramic Award for ceramics research and edited five books, along with authoring over 200 archival research papers. He also currently serves as an OzReader for the Australian Research Council to assess Laureate Fellowships and Discovery Projects proposals.
