Development of SHS-Si3N4 in LSCPM


Article Preview

Since 1990, Ge and his earlier and present groups in LSCPM have made great efforts to investigate the Self-propagating High-temperature Synthesis (SHS) of Si-N2 gas-solid system including the SHS process control and its thermodynamics, structural macrokinetics and formation mechanism of SHS-Si3N4. In this presentation, some results that were firstly reported in the world are reviewed and new progress in recent years is reported.
