Performance is critical for today’s advanced applications of ceramics. Whether they are being used as electrical insulators or for thermal protection on a spacecraft, the failure of ceramic components can have serious, even life-threatening consequences.
In addition to offering speed, accuracy, and a wide measurement range, mercury porosimetry permits the calculation of numerous sample properties such as pore size distributions, total pore volume, total pore surface area, median pore diameter and sample densities (bulk and skeletal).
Our June issue includes features focusing on ceramic medical/dental applications, building-integrated photovoltaics challenges and opportunities, analytical challenges, and the new OSHA silica rule. Check it out today!
