Abstract : During the past decade, interests in the processing of ceramics have been shifting from the micron-scale to the submicron scale of powders. Simultaneously there has been a growing interest n the sol-gel process to produce glasses. In addition, the use of metal-organic compounds as precursors has been successful in the preparation of silicon carbide fibers. The objectives for this Third Conference was similar to those of the two previous ones, namely to establish and to strengthen the scientific foundation for a new era in the processing of ceramics, glasses and composites for electronic, optical, structural and novel applications. In the past few years, attempts to understand and to control the processing of these materials on a submicron and even molecular scale through direct interactions between chemists, materials scientists, engineers and physicists, made possible by the support of AFOSR and others, have already led to new materials, novel processes and improved properties.
