The effect of nano-sized sintering aids on toughening behavior of silicon nitride

Processing plays an important role in determining the microstructure of silicon nitrides which in turn influences the mechanical properties, such as hardness and toughness. Sintering aids are an important processing parameter. The influence of the chemistry of sintering aids on properties of silicon...
