About the book

Glass-ceramics have been described as polycrystalline materials of fine microstructure that are produced by controlling the nucleation and crystal phases growth within the glass. The glass is firstly melted, produced to shape, and thermally converted into mostly crystalline ceramics. The distribution of these crystalline phases in the glass matrix increases the uniformity of the material and, by comparison, effectively limits crack growth. The technologies of glass-ceramic have developed rapidly in the past few decades due to the excellent mechanical and thermal properties of these materials. These properties are attractive to replace traditional materials and can also meet the technical requirements of new applications, such as radome and coatings. Glass ceramics are receiving great attention due to their diversity of applications, which have the potential to meet the recent requirements of advanced mechanical, optical and biomedical applications. This book covers a wide range of topics such as glass-ceramic forming, shaping, and production, structure, properties, testing and characterizations, nucleation and crystallization, application of building materials, military, electronics, cooking ceramics, machinable ceramics, biomedical and optical materials.

Publishing process

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: July 9th 2022

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: September 27th 2022

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: November 26th 2022

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

About the editor

Uday Basheer

University of Technology Malaysia

Dr. Uday M. Basheer Al-Naib is a Senior Lecturer at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). He completed his post-doctorate in Material Engineering at Universiti SainsMalaysia (USM) between 2013 and 2014. He received his Ph.D. in Materials Engineering from USM in 2013. He obtained his Master and Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Baghdad and the University of Technology, IRAQ, respectively. He has over 30 years of academic and practical experience in the field of ceramic and metal composites; metal alloys; advanced ceramics; porous ceramics; ceramic-metal joining; materials characterizations and forming; ceramic insulators; ceramic membranes; thermoelectric energy conversion and ceramic coating. He is acknowledged at the practical level for solving specific problems related to material industries. This was evident through his research work issued with different publishers and international material engineering journals with high impact factors. In addition to his own research, Dr. Uday has been acting as a supervisor of several academic theses (Masters and Doctorate) related to different fields of material engineering. He also has professional membership (ProfGradIMMM) in the Institute of Materials, Minerals, and Mining (IOM3) and Fellow membership (F.I.M.M.) at the Institute of Materials, Malaysia (IMM).

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Martina Ivancic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
