Phase transformations in ceramics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The aim of this work is to list known examples of non-perovskite-type transformations which have significant volume and/or unit cell shape changes. Such transformations in ceramic composites may have beneficial effects on the mechanical properties of composites. When coupled with conventional perovskite transformations they could produce a more powerful mechanical response. In the case of martensitic transformations which proceed with the speed of sound, the response times are comparable with current sensor and actuator materials.
