Paper Title:
Investigation of γ-Alon Structural Evolution during Sintering and Hot-Pressing
  Abstract

Dense polycrystalline aluminium oxynitride with spinel structure, -alon, is noted for its excellent thermal properties, high-temperature mechanical properties, low dielectric constant, thermal expansion coefficients and intrinsic transparency extending from ultraviolet to mid-infrared wavelengths. The dense materials were made by reactive pressureless sintering or hot-pressing of the SHS derived powders. Powders were synthesized from mixtures of aluminium and corundum powders of different proportions. The products of the SHS synthesis were composed mostly of -alon and in lesser extend of aluminium nitride. Ground powders were pressureless sintered at temperatures of 1800-2100°C for 2-6hs as well as hot-pressed at 1750-1950°C for 1 h under 25 MPa in nitrogen flow. The present work is focused on phase evolution of -alon materials during pressureless sintering and hot-pressing. The structural changes of -alon, a Al2O3 and AlN were also examined.
