Article Preview

The integrated translucent alumina tube used in metal halide lamps have been fabricated by gelcasting process. The influence of sintering process, various sintering fluxes on the micro- structure was discussed. Furthermore, the relation between the luminance and the microstructure was also investigated. The results reveal that when the sintering temperature is 1750°C, the holding time is 6h, the compact product whose average grain size is about 20μm could be obtained; the triple dopant combinations of MgO, Y2O3, La2O3 can promote sintering and improve the microstructure more than double, single dopants and the contents of sintering flux are 99.6wt%Al2O3, 0.2wt%MgO, 0.1wt.%Y2O3 and 0.1wt.%La2O3 respectively; The transmittance increases with the pore decreaseing, the grain size enlarging and the degree of the surface finish improving, the average in line transmittance is about 40%.
