Paper Title:
Thermal Conductivity and Mechanical Property of Si3N4 Ceramics Sintered with CeF3/LaF3 Additives
  Abstract

In this paper, rare-earth fluorides were used as sintering additives instead of rare-earth oxides, the influence of the type and the amount of the fluoride on the thermal conductivity, hardness and strength of Si3N4 ceramics was studied. Results show that the thermal conductivity of a sample sintered with CeF3 is nearly 10% higher than that of the sample sintered with Ce2O3, while the samples sintered with LaF3 increases further 15% as comparing with the samples sintered with CeF3. The strength of the samples changes reversely. These results express that the thermal conductivity of Si3N4 ceramics can be improved by using rare-earth fluoride additives instead of the oxides, and the type of rare-earth fluorides has a significant impact on the properties of Si3N4 ceramics.
