On the Grain Size Distribution of MnO Doped ZnO Ceramics


Article Preview

A series of MnO-doped ZnO with different grain sizes and grain morphologies were prepared by sintering the samples at different temperatures for different holding times. The grain size distribution for each sample was determined. It was found that, although the grain size increases and the grain morphology varies with the sintering temperature and/or the holding time, the normalized grain size distribution keeps invariable.
