Hierarchical Structured Nanomaterial Fabricated by Nanopowder Process: Nanopowder Agglomerate Sintering
The key concept of nanopowder agglomerate sintering (NAS) process is based on the optimization of structure design and full density processing of nanopowder into nanostructured micro-components. The kinetics of NAS process is characteristic of being controlled by material transport through hierarchical interface structures of nanopowder agglomerates. Through optimal design of those hierarchical interfaces such as nano grain boundary and agglomerate boundary, thus, full density nanopowder materials can be fabricated by pressureless sintering. In this paper we overview recent studies on the role of hierarchical interfaces for processing of full density nanopowder materials.
