Sintering in a flash? Researchers show its possible to do it in seconds with nanograin YSZ, heat and dc electric field

By / October 13, 2010

Talk about tantalizing tidbits of technology! There is a new article available online that reports on research showing that green-density yttrium-stabilized zirconia can be sintered to full density in only a few seconds at 850°C, when subjected to a dc electrical field above a critical threshold. For a sense of what a radical difference this…
