Damping Mechanisms in Oxide Materials and Their Potential Applications
In this paper, we review the damping mechanisms in oxide materials, such as the short-range jump of oxygen vacancies and cation vacancies, movement of domain walls, and grain boundary sliding. Some examples in doped ZrO2, La2CuO4+δ, La2Mo2O9 and other oxide materials are briefly discussed, in which the damping capacity can reach as high as 30%. These oxides could be possibly applied as high damping materials either in the form of bulk components, or as additives in composites, or as hard damping coatings. In the last two potential applications, the high hardness and strength as well as high damping capacity of the oxides are simultaneously exploited, which cannot be realized by the usual high-damping metals and alloys.
