Summary

The subject defines ceramic materials, their structure and methods of structural analysis. A special attention is paid to the methods of phase analysis. Under the terms of subject, the connection between a structure of ceramic materials and properties, which these materials show, is defined. Teaching of this subject is closer oriented onto the field relating to the topic of student’s doctoral thesis.
