Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis of Aluminum Nitride and its Characterization
Aluminum nitride was synthesized by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) with flaky aluminum powder in various conditions such as particle size, nitrogen pressure (PN 2), dilution factor f( DilN2 and packing density, but not by fDil. The degree of AlN conversion reduces more or less with an increase of bulk sample size, but that could be improved by using the SHS pre-prepared product as a diluent.
