Cutting edge high temperature materials include high temperature superconductors and solid oxide fuel cells and have applications in key areas such as energy, transportation and space technologies. This book introduces the concepts that underpin research into these critical materials including thermodynamics, kinetics and various physical, chemical and modelling techniques with a focus on practical how-to methods. With highly detailed instrument illustrations, this book is a practical reference on high temperature measurements for researchers, advanced students and those working in academic or industrial laboratories.
