Effect of LaCl3 on the Properties of LAS Ceramics
In this research, different amounts of LaCl3 were added to the lithium aluminum silicate (LAS) ceramics and the sample powder was prepared by sol-gel method. The effect of LaCl3 on the density, bending strength and the thermal expansion of the obtained ceramics was mainly investigated because LaCl3 is heavier than the lithium aluminum silicate (LAS) ceramics and the superfluous of La2O3 can be introduced into the sol solution.
