Abstract: Si3N4 ceramics with V2O5 based glasses as sintering additives were successfully fabricated by a powder mixing process and rapid sintering by the PECS method. The fabricated materials by Pulsed Electric Current Sintering (PECS) exhibited very fine microstructure with α and β grains. Electric conductivity for the Si3N4/(V2O5-B2O3) and the Si3N4/(V2O5-B2O3-Al2O3) at room temperature were four and six orders of magnitude higher at room temperature, and two and three orders of magnitude higher at 1000 oC than the conventional Si3N4, respectively

Abstract: The electrical conductivity was provided to structural ceramics by controlling the grain boundary phase. We focused on the grain boundary phase of Si3N4 ceramics, which can be considered as an infinite network for conducting paths. In this study, we investigated the correlationship of the microstructure, mechanical properties, and electrical conductivity of Si3N4 ceramics with V2O5 based glasses. The Si3N4 ceramic with V2O5 based glasses were successfully fabricated by controlling the composition of grain boundary phase. Fabricated materials by a PECS method indicated a very fine microstructure. The mechanical properties of Si3N4 ceramics with V2O5 based glasses were not good compared to those of conventional Si3N4. However, the values for the SNVB and the SNVBA were four or six orders of magnitude higher at room temperature and had excellent mechanical properties compared to pure V2O5 based glasses.

Abstract: A novel transparent polycrystalline silicon nitride was fabricated by hot-press sintering with MgO and AlN as additives. The mixed powder with 3 wt.% MgO and 9 wt.% AlN was sintered at 1900oC for 1 hour under 30 MPa pressure in a nitrogen gas atmosphere. Transparent polycrystalline silicon nitride was successfully fabricated. The mechanical properties such as density, hardness, young’s modulus, fracture strength and fracture toughness were evaluated. The effect of α/β phase on the mechanical properties of transparent polycrystalline silicon nitride was investigated. The properties were changed depending on the amount of α/β phase. The hardness and Young's modulus increased with increasing the volume fraction of α-phase fraction as a reflection of the higher hardness of α-phase Si3N4. The fracture toughness and fracture strength decreased with decreasing the volume fraction of β-phase Si3N4.
