Research on the Microstructure of Solid FeS by TEM
The microstructures of three kinds of synthetical solid FeS, acting as a solid lubricant, which includes FeS bulk, FeS particle and FeS powder, were studied by transmission electron microscope (TEM) in this article. The TEM photographs showed that different shapes of FeS had quite dissimilar characteristics. The texture of FeS powder was the loosest among the three shapes, and it tended to forming flocculent aggregation; while FeS bulk and FeS particle were more dispersive. The electron diffraction results showed that the crystals of solid FeS were composed of many single crystals and multi-crystals, with two kinds of crystalline structure- hexagonal structure and face-centered cubic structure.
