To date, many types of polymer-derived ceramic fibers have been developed all over the world. Of these, SiC fibers synthesized from polycarbosilane and its derivatives have achieved the highest heat-resistance along with their excellent mechanical properties. Using these type of SiC fibers for the ceramic matrix composite materials, both high-temperature strength and light weight have been achieved. Therefore, these fibers have attracted a great deal of attention in the field of next-generation aerospace engine, nuclear applications, and so on. Furthermore, several types of functional ceramic fibers with surface gradient structures have been developed using derivatives of polycarbosilane. This book summarizes the historical viewpoint of polymer-derived ceramic fibers, basic information (production process, fine structures, physical properties, and so forth) about them, and their applications. It also presents prospects of future inorganic fibers.
- Unlike other books on precursor-derived ceramics, this book gives exhaustive details about commercial fibers, especially SiC fibers.
- It addresses the excellent SiC fibers along with their derivatives, which will play an important role in the field of aerospace engine and energy applications.
- It presents experiences of the developers of these fibers, detailing the challenges faced during the process.
