Design of Alumina/Alumina Laminate Composites with Crystalline-Orientated Layers Produced by Electrophoretic Deposition under a High Magnetic Field
Highly crystalline-textured alumina ceramics were fabricated by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) in a strong magnetic field of 12 T. Preferred orientation of the bulk was controlled by changing the direction of the applied electric field E relative to the magnetic field B during the EPD. Average orientation angle of the prepared monoliths as a function of the angle between the vectors E and B, ϕ B-E was estimated from the X-ray diffraction analysis. Alumina/alumina laminar composites with crystalline- oriented layers were also fabricated by alternately changing the ϕ B-E layer by layer during EPD in a magnetic field of 12 T.
