Abstract: In this study, an addition of Co and Cu oxides to Sm0.2Ce0.8O1.9 (SDC) was studied to improve the SDC sinterability. It has been found that both Co and Cu oxide are very effective as sintering aids, and the SDC sintering temperature can be reduced from 1400°C without aids to below 1000°C with only 1at.% of either Cu or Co. As compared to the pure SDC, a slight decrease of ionic conductivity was observed in SDC with Cu sintering aid. There is no obvious effect on electrochemical property of SDC with Co sintering aid under 2.5at.%.

Abstract: The influence of Mn addition (from 1 up to 10 mol%) on densification and electrical conductivity of CeO2 was studied in detail. Bulk specimens were prepared by the conventional technique of mixing suitable amounts of cerium dioxide and manganese carbonate, followed by pressing and sintering. The apparent density of sintered specimens was determined by the immersion method and electrical characterization was carried out by impedance spectroscopy measurements in the 300 to 550 °C range. High densification (> 95% of the theoretical density) was obtained for small addition of Mn (1 mol%) to CeO2 sintered at 1300 °C for only 0.1 h. Electrical conductivity changes in sintered pellets depend on the sintering procedure, but not on the manganese content.

Abstract: CaF2 inorganic nanometer powder particles were used as sintering aid to sintering good conductive Fe-6.5Si alloy. By a physical method, CaF2 inorganic nanopowder particles were made with a granularity of 15-30 nm assembled between micron-sized Fe-6.5Si powder particles prepared by gas atomization. 6.5 % Si high silicon steel were fabricated by spark plasma sintering (SPS) with varying contents of CaF2. The discharge enhancement effect of CaF2 inorganic nanospark plasma aid is confirmed. The initial sintering temperature and the final sintering temperature were decreased by 75 °C and 70 °C respectively with 0.5 % CaF2 inorganic nanopowder aid. In the case of reduced 60 °C, the higher density for the particles with the addition of CaF2 was observed compared with without CaF2. When the nanopowder was 2%, sintering performance decreased. The study indicates that sintering pressure has an enormous effect on the Fe-6.5Si sintering effect.

Abstract: The effect of CoO addition into Y-TZP (Yttria doped Tetragonal Zirconia Polycrystals) was studied on the evolution of its sintering ability, grain size, grain boundary structure and mechanical properties. The doping of a small amount of CoO effectively reduced the sintering temperature. A small amount of CoO up to ~ 0.3 mol% was effective for the suppression of grain growth, but the addition of 1.0 mole % resulted in an enhanced grain growth. The hardness and toughness of the CoO doped TZP were about the same as those of undoped TZP. Furthermore, despite the grain refinement, CoO doped TZP did not exhibit improved mechanical properties. This may be suggesting that CoO dopant had weakened the grain boundary strength.

Abstract: The effects of Li2CO3-V2O5 (LV) co-doped on the sinterability, phase compositions and microwave dielectric properties of 0.6Mg4Nb2O9-0.4SrTiO3 composite ceramics have been investigated. All specimens were prepared by solid-state reaction method and sintered at 1050-1200oC for 5h. With an amount LV addition, the densification sintering temperature is significantly lowed from 1300oC to 1175oC. The non-stoichiometric compounds Sr(NbTi)O3+δ and Mg4(Nb1-xTix)2O9-δ were confirmed by X-ray diffraction and energy dispersive X-ray analysis. For the specimen with 1.5 wt% LV addition sintered at 1175oC for 5 h exhibited dielectric properties: εr=20.1, Q•f=10 240 GHz, τf =0.15 ppm/oC.

Abstract: TiB2/TiN composites with various content of Ni and Mo as sintering aid were hot-pressed at 1530°C. Effect of the content of sintering aid on microstructure and mechanical properties is investigated. Experimental results show that the fracture toughness of the composites increases consistently with an increase in the sintering aid content, however, the flexural strength gets to the maximum when the content of sintering aid is 10vol%. A new eutectic phase of MoNi can be found in the composites by X-ray diffraction (XRD) when the amount of sintering aid is over 7vol%. Scan electron microscope (SEM) analysis shows that the density of the composites increases consistently with the increasing of the sintering aid. But the abnormal-growth grains can be found and deteriorates the flexural strength in the composite No.4 because of the excessive sintering aid.

Abstract: The ceramics with large bulk density and high bending strength were fabricated via semi-dry pressing and pressureless sintering in the air. Andalusite and calcined bauxite were used as the raw materials, sintering aids such as potassium feldspar, albite, talc, spodumene and borax were added to promote the densification and decrease the sintering temperature of the samples. The best physical properties were obtained on a sample of optimal composition (the addition of sintering aid was talc) sintered at 1500 °C for 3 h, i.e. a bending strength of 138.52 MPa and bulk density of 2.61gcm-3, the sintering temperature was lower than sample without addition of sintering aid.
