Fabrication and Properties of Aluminum Nitide Ceramics Doped Carbon Nanotubes
Aluminum nitride ceramics doped carbon nanotubes were fabricated by dispersed multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) into AlN powders homogenously. The densification, electric resistance, thermal conductivity and relative dielectric constant of AlN ceramics were investigated. It was found that MWNTs additives could purify the grain boundaries. Furthermore, it induced the increase of the thermal conductivity and the decrease of the relative dielectric constant. However, the linear shrinkage and electric resistance decreased with increasing MWNTs amount. AlN ceramics with high thermal conductivity and low relative dielectric constant were obtained without apparent decrease of electric resistivity.
