Microanalytical Tem Studies of Ceramic Materials

  • Ewald Bischoff (a1) and Manfred Rühle (a1)


Frequently, the processing of dense, strong, and tough ceramics requires the addition of sintering aids. The materials are therefore composed of various components. For the understanding of the properties of the ceramics it is essential that the microstructure and the distribution of the different components within the material are known. The possibilities and limitations of microanalytical TEM studies will be described for different structural ceramics, e.g. ZrO2 , NiO, SiC, and SiAlON.
