Paper Title:
Effect of Sintering Additive Composition on Grain Boundary Structure in Liquid-Phase-Sintered Silicon Carbide
  Abstract

Both the presence and absence of an amorphous intergranular film (IGF) between the SiC grains have previously been reported in liquid-phase-sintered SiC ceramics (LPS-SiC). The dominant factor(s) responsible for the grain boundary structure in LPS-SiC has not been clearly revealed. In the present study, LPS-SiC ceramics containing different compositions of sintering additives were fabricated and characterized with respect to their grain boundary structure, using both scanning and transmission electron microscopy. The results suggest that the sintering additive composition plays a dominant role in the evolution of grain boundary structure in LPS-SiC.
