Ei Compendex provides worldwide coverage of more than 4,500 journals and selected government reports and books. Subjects include: civil, energy, environmental, geological, and biological engineering; electrical, electronics, and control engineering; chemical, mining, metals, and fuel engineering; mechanical, automotive, nuclear, and aerospace engineering; computers, robotics, and industrial robots. In addition to journal literature, there are more than 480,000 records of significant published proceedings of engineering and technical conferences formerly indexed in Ei Engineering Meetings®. The four files cover different time periods with File 8 being the most comprehensive (1884-present). ONTAP® Compendex, File 208, is available for ONline Training And Practice and contains records from 2002-2007.

  /AB    Silicon carbide (SiC) as both the most important non-oxide ceramic and 
    promising semiconductor material grows stoichiometric SiO2 as its native 
    oxide. During passive oxidation, a surface transformation of SiC into 
    silica takes place causing bulk volume and bulk mass increase. This review 
    summarizes state-of-the-art information about the structural aspects of 
    silicon carbide, silica, and SiC-SiO2 interfaces and discusses 
    physicochemical properties and kinetics of the processes involved. A 
    special section describes the electronic properties of carbide-oxide 
    interfaces, which are inferior compared to Si-SiO2 interfaces, limiting the 
    use of SiC-based electronics. In the oxidation of SiC there is a variety of 
    parameters (e.g., porosity, presence of sintering aids, impurities, 
    crystallographic orientation, surface treatment, and atmospheric 
    composition) influencing the process. Therefore, the kinetics can be 
    complex and will be discussed in detail. Nonetheless, a general 
    linear-parabolic time-law can be found for most SiC materials for passive 
    oxidation, thus indicating a mainly diffusion-controlled mechanism. The 
    pronounced anisotropy of SiC expresses itself by quite different oxidation 
    rates for the various crystallographic faces. Manifold impact factors are 
    reflected by oxidation rate-constants for silicon carbide that vary over 
    orders of magnitude. The understanding of SiC oxidation and silica 
    formation is still limited; therefore, different oxidation models are 
    presented and evaluated in the light of current knowledge.
