Abstract : Work on several electronic ceramic materials was conducted during this project. These materials included LiZn Ferrites, PTCR BaTiO3, and Strontium Barium Niobate based ceramics. The main focus of this research was on the study of reliability and reproducibility as a function of processing conditions. More specifically, novel processing techniques, such as sol-gel powder fabrication and powder coating, and processing variables were studied to gain an understanding of the reliability and reproducibility of the above materials.
