Recrystallization of Ceramics
This technology is a recrystallization method of zirconium diboride (ZrB2) to change the ceramic material properties. The brittle nature of the ceramic material is transformed to be metal-like after the recrystallization process, which results in "strain-free" equiaxed grains. Background: Although ceramic materials are brittle with high...
