Synthesis of alpha-SiAlON Seed Crystals
Single-phase seed crystals of Ca- and Y-α-SiAlONs have been synthesized for tailoring microstructure of α-SiAlON ceramics. The influence of composition, sintering temperature, and nitrogen pressure on the size and morphology of seeds has been explored. Guidelines for α-SiAlON seed preparation and morphology control are provided.
