The Aerosol Deposition (AD) Method: Innovative Coating Technology that Defies Conventional Wisdom
Ceramics are normally considered as materials made through firing. Fabricating a ceramic without firing was inconceivable; until several years ago, this was global conventional wisdom. Jun Akedo (JA), Prime Senior Researcher at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute, is the person who overturned conventional
wisdom (Fig. 1). At CERAMICS JAPAN 2018, he presented the findings and applications of his research at AIST/JP.
