Paper Title:
Effect of HIP on the Properties and Microstructure of Transparent Polycrystalline Spinel
  Abstract

In this paper, transparent polycrystalline magnesium aluminate spinel was fabricated by hot pressing ultra fine high purity spinel powder using LiF as the sintering aid in vacuum, then hot isostatic pressing (HIPing) the sintered body to improve the optical properties of the sample. The transmittance and the strength of the samples before and after HIPing were measured; morphologies of the fracture surface of the samples before and after HIPing were observed. Following hot pressing, the grain size of the sample is small; the transmission values are low and may varied at different sites in the same sample. After HIPing, the strength of the sample decreased, the grain size increased obviously, and the transmittance and the uniformity of transmittance increased significantly. The panel of transparent spinel up to 200 mm in diameter and 8 mm thick was fabricated by this method; the average transmittance of the spinel is above 80% in the range between 2 μm and 5 μm .
