The demand for new applications for ceramics joints at different length scales, i.e. from nano/ micro-mechanical systems to large components is still growing and requires specialised joining solutions to meet complex end-product requirements. Challenges arise when components of differing materials with often incompatible behaviour must be joined and integrated in operating systems. This session, that follows the ones on the same subject held in previous CIMTEC Conferences, will discuss fundamental and practical issues of the joining of inorganic materials (i.e. ceramic-to-ceramic/-glass-metal-carbon), at different length scales. Experimental and theoretical viewpoints will be addressed concerning physical chemistry of surfaces and interfaces: wetting and interfacial reactions; diffusion and compound formation; joining techniques; joint characterization and testing; lifetime and reliability prediction of joints, and their in-service performance.
