Synthesis and Characterization of LaMgAl11O19 as Thermal Barrier Coatings Material


Article Preview

LaMgAl11O19 was synthesized at 1550 °C using La2O3, MgO and Al2O3 as raw materials. The samples were characterization by XRD and SEM. The tablet shaped crystals free of impurity phase formed under this condition. The thermal diffusivities were measured by laser flash method and the determined intrinsic thermal conductivities decreased as temperature increases from 25 °C to 1000 °C. As comparison, intrinsic thermal conductivities of LaMgAl11O19 are lower than that of 7YSZ. The synthesized LaMgAl11O19 was heat treated at higher temperature from 1600 °C to 1700 °C and no change in the phase indicates that the LaMgAl11O19 phase is stable under 1700 °C, which is very important for thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) serving at elevated temperature.
