Flash spark plasma sintering: Harnessing thermal runaway to densify silicon carbide in seconds

By April Gocha / October 11, 2016

Researchers at San Diego State University now report that they have developed an ultra-rapid method of flash spark plasma sintering, called flash hot pressing, that can really quickly densify even hard-to-deform materials such as silicon carbide.
