Orientation Control in Multilayered Alumina Prepared Using Electrophoretic Deposition in a Strong Magnetic Field
We have reported that development of texture can be controlled by colloidal processing in a strong magnetic field followed by heating even for diamagnetic ceramics such as alumina, titania and so on. We demonstrate in this study that alumina/alumina laminar composites with different crystalline-oriented layer are produced by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) in a strong magnetic field. This composite was fabricated by alternately changing the angle between the directions of the magnetic and electric fields layer by layer during EPD in 12T. The grains in alternate layers are aligned differently.
