Objective: Main aim was to explore a novel surface treatment for ceramics that creates surface features allowing any cement to enhance any ceramic in resisting crack opening displacement and without reducing (and hopefully increasing) the ceramic material’s strength. This novel treatment is laser machining which was used to create a matrix of shallow surface â€divots†. It was hoped that rapid heating and cooling of ceramic surfaces can leave compressive surface stresses, thus increasing its strength. Additionally, it was hypothesized that this novel treatment may cure or eliminate existing surface flaws. Materials and Methods: this project first screened laser-treated surfaces by biaxial strength testing. Differently sized and spaced features were investigated for their influence on flexural strengths. Features were developed in 0.5 mm thick tabs of In-Ceram YZ (Vita Zahnfabrik, Bad Säckingen, Germany) by the Laser Applications Laboratory at Trumpf Laser Und Systemtechnique GmbH, Ditzingen, Germany. Dimensional and visual details of each surface treatment were provided by Trumpf using optical laser scanning confocal microscopy. An IR ps (picoseconds laser) based on a Disk- and Fiber technology (TruMicro 5000 series, Trumpf, USA) was used with characteristics of 6ps pulse duration, IR 1030nm wavelength and 50W average power. Laser treated tabs were compared with as-received and sand-blasted surface treatments. Based on flexural strength testing results, laser treatment resulting in 22 Î1⁄4m spot size, 5 Î1⁄4m depth and 60 Î1⁄4m distance was chosen as the treatment of choice. 22 laser treated In-Ceram YZ specimens were tested. This was compared with sandblasting using 50 Î1⁄4m Al2O3 particles (aluminum oxide blasting compound, 50 Î1⁄4m/240 grit fine grain size; Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc., Amherst, NY) at 2.0 bar pressure from a distance of 10 mm parallel and perpendicular to the tabs’ surface for 10 seconds. 21 sand-blasted In-Ceram YZ specimens were tested. All specimens were cemented to bases of a dentin-like material. Each specimen was cyclically loaded by a 2-mm diameter G10 piston in water. Loads ranging from 10 N to the target load were applied at a frequency of 20 Hertz for 500 000 cycles. If cracked, the next specimen was cycled at a lower load; if not cracked, at a higher load (step size of 25 N). Results: Comparison of flexural strength values between groups with features of varying distance showed that there was no statistically difference between them. Comparison of strength values between groups with features of varying depth showed that specimens with 22 Î1⁄4m deep features showed significantly lower strength than specimens with features of 3 Î1⁄4m or 15 Î1⁄4m depth. Overall, laser treated groups showed decreased flexural strength than sandblasted or as-received specimens. Two-dimensional fit of flexural strength results of groups with different feature depths lead to the observation that strength started to deteriorate after depth increased beyond 5-10 Î1⁄4m. Since flexural strength testing was done as a screening procedure to chose the best characteristics for laser surface treatment, we chose to perform fatigue testing on specimens with 5 Î1⁄4m deep features. Fatigue testing showed that the sandblasted group was significantly stronger than the laser treated group. Conclusions: The laser surface treatment envisioned in this study was meant to provide protection against crack opening displacement without weakening dental ceramics. Flexural strength of specimens with surface features varying in depth and spacing was significantly lower than strength of sandblasted and as-received specimens. Laser treatment resulting in 20 Î1⁄4m spot size, 5 Î1⁄4m depth and 60 Î1⁄4m distance was chosen as the treatment of choice for fatigue testing and compared with sandblasted specimens. The laser treatment lead to decreased fatigue strength when compared to sandblasting. Laser treatment did not have the expected result, most probably due to undetected subsurface damage.

Several ceramic parts have already proven their suitability for serial application in automobile engines in very impressive ways, especially in Japan, the USA and in Germany. However, there is still a lack of economical quality assurance concepts. Recently, a new generation of ceramic components, for the use in energy, transportation and environment systems, has been developed. The efforts are more and more system oriented in this field. The only possibility to manage this complex issue in the future will be interdisciplinary cooperation. Chemists, physicists, material scientists, process engineers, mechanical engineers and engine manufacturers will have to cooperate in a more intensive way than ever before. The R&D activities are still concentrating on gas turbines and reciprocating engines, but also on brakes, bearings, fuel cells, batteries, filters, membranes, sensors and actuators as well as on shaping and cutting tools for low expense machining of ceramic components. This book summarizes the scientific papers of the 7th International Symposium "Ceramic Materials and Components for Engines". Some of the most fascinating new applications of ceramic meterials in energy, transportation and environment systems are presented. The proceedings shall lead to new ideas for interdisciplinary activities in the future.

Printmaking techniques have long been used in the pottery industry, but until comparatively recently ceramicists have tended to view the use of these techniques with disdain. Attitudes are changing rapidly now, however, as makers continue to explore creative possibilities while working with ceramic materials. In this book, Paul Scott briefly discusses the history of ceramics and print, and then concentrates on the techniques used by contemporary ceramicists. These include: screen printing, both transfer decoration and working directly onto clay; photographic processes; sponge printing; stamped ware; linocuts; prints from plaster slabs; and other printmaking techniques. For this new edition Ceramics and Print has been significantly expanded and treats recent developments in the use of the photocopier, laser printer, and computer-generated prints. Many of the illustrations are new, and color images now replace almost all of the earlier black-and-white photographs. The book, groundbreaking in its original publication, has in the Second Edition been brought up to date and should add considerably to the knowledge of this exciting and popular medium.
