    Abstract   HTML   PDF (417KB)
    Polycrystalline TiN/TaN multilayers were grown by reactive magnetron sputtering on WC-Co sintered hard alloy Substrates. Multilayer structure and composition modulation amplitudes were studied using X-ray diffraction method. Hardness and elastic modulus were measured by nanoindentation tester. For A>8.0 nm, hardness is lower than rule-of mixtures value of individual single layer, and increased rapidly with decreasing A, peaking at hardness values≈33% higher than that at A=4.3 nm. As a result of analysing the inclination of applied load for indenter displacement on P-h curve (△P/△h), this paper exhibits that the enhancement of the resistance to dislocation motion and elastic anomaly due to coherency strains are responsibie for the hardness change

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1997, 13 (4): 255-259. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (511KB)
    A new model of multirange fractals is proposed to explain the experimental results observed on the fractal dimensions of the fractured surfaces in materials. A new expIanation to the WilIiford's multifractal curve on the relationship of fractal dimension with fracture properties in materials has been given. It shows the importance of fractorizing out the effect of fractal structure from other physical causes and separating the appropriate range of scale from multirange fractals.Mechanical alloying process under ball milling as a non-equilibrium dynamical system has been also analyzed

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (455KB)
    For a few years it has been realized that nanocrystalline phases can be formed during crystallization of amorphous alloys annealed isothermally below the crystallization temperature of usual heating experiments. Data of this transformation monitored by the measurement of magnetic susceptibility are presented. A method using a magnetic balance with electronic stabilisation and combined computer facilities is applied. Constant heating and cooling rates as well as isothermal heat treatments are used. Magnetic measurements are able to detect the onset of the transformation of amorphous Ni-P alloys much earlier than was possible with differential scanning calorimetry. The transformation kinetics can be analyzed by means of the Avrami plot based on the Johnson-Mehl-Avrami equation.The kinetics of solid state reactions in the nanostructured material can be investigated similarly. Formation of a Ni-phase in a nanostructured Hf-Ni alloy could be detected in a very early stage, where calorimetric methods are not sensitive. Segregation phenomena could be detected from the experiments even after long time. The sensitivity of the applied method is not dependent on the heating rate as the sensitivity of scanning calorimetry is

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1997, 13 (4): 265-270. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (3605KB)
    Nanometer-sized metal clusters were prepared inside single crystalline MgO films by vacuum co-deposition of metals and MgO. The atomic structure was studied by high-resolution electron microscopy (HREM) and nm-area electron diffraction. The size of the clusters is ranging from 1 nm to 3 nm without those larger than 5 nm, and most of them have definite epitaxial orientations with the MgO matrix films. The character of the composite films is very much useful for the studies of various kinds of physical properties with anisotroPy. The physical properties such as electric transport, magnetic, optical absorption, sintering and catalytic ones were thus measured on the same samples analyzed by HREM by using high sensitivity apparatus with interest of clarifying the retationship between the atomic structure and physical properties

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (554KB)
    We have studied structures and properties of nanostructured films prepared with nanometersized lithium fluoride(LiF) clusters by inert gas condensation method, and then characterized by transmission electron microscope, Fourier transform infrared spectra and Raman scattering spectra, etc. Following important results are obtained: Multi-order-like Raman scatterings from LiF clusters are obtained, including the fine structure of the spectra. The observed Raman peaks are discussed in terms of surface optical modes, Lo. To, LA modes and their combination form.As the cluster size decreases, the phonons are confined in nanoscale so that the q vector selection rule is relaxed or even totally free of q conservation, and prohibition at the first- and third-order scatterings in the bulk LiF crystal is relaxed. The sudece modes appear and play an important role in Raman scattering processes. The infrared absorption spectra are obtained with different deposition conditions. When the clusters are in the medium size range from ~7 to 15 nm, most infrared absorption peaks are second-order feature, and no single surface mode emerges. For the smaller clusters, molecular-like vibration is observed whereas the broad band of long wavelength transverse-optical modes appear from 580 to 400 nm-1 for the clusters larger than 19 nm

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (497KB)
    The specific heat of the nanostructured crystals, the glass, the liquid and the crystals for a ZrAINiCuCo alloy has been measured by using the differential scanning calorimeter. The specific heat value and its temperature coefficient of the nanostructured crystals are larger than that of the relaxed glass and of the crystals. Through measuring crystallization enthalpies and specific heat of the alloy in different states, the enthalpy difFerences among the crystals, the liquid and the nanostructured crystals are calculated and the intedece energies of nanostructured crystals are estimated. The stability and the grain size limit of the nanostructured crystals are discussed.

    The microstructure of CdI2 thin film grown during vapor-phase deposition was investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The thin film deposited on Si crystal consists of numerous sunflower-like aggregates. These aggregates display well self-assembly characteristics. The size of Sunflower-like aggregates is between 12 and 44 μm. Each sunflower-like aggregate is surrounded with many adjacent wings-"petals". The structure of central region of the "sunflower" is obviously difFerent from that of the "petal".

    Raman spectra of the PbTiO3 films via sol-gel process were investigated by using a Jobin Yvon U1000 system. Compared with the Raman spectra of the PbTiO3 single crystals, Raman peaks of PbTiOs films shift downward, which is attributed to the stress effect in the PbTiO3 films exerted by the substrate and the size effect on the Raman frequencies

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1726KB)
    Vibrational properties of silicon nanopowders are discussed with reference to Raman spectroscopic measurements. The powders were produced in a low pressure rf plasma from the cluster induced agglomeration of positive ions formed during the dissociation of silane. Influence of thermal treatment and the crystallization phenomena of the powder were studied. Raman spectroscopic measurements reveal size quantization effects for the particles as well as the existence of partially ordered regions in the apparently amorphous primary particles. The crystalline and amorphous volume fraction in the material were calculated from the relative spectraI intensities. The results obtained in these experiments are consistent with the observations from recent high resolution transmission electron microscopy studies of these powders

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (980KB)
    The composite of Dy-α-sialon/10 wt pct nano-size SiC particles has been prepared from precursor powders of Si3N4, AIN, Al2O3, Dy2O3 and nano-size β-SiC. The hardness, toughness and bending strength of the composite at ambient temperature are a little higher than those of Dy-α-sialon.while the bending strength is maintained up to 1000℃ and about 2 times more than that of Dy-α-sialon at the same temperature. The fracture surfaces show that the grain size of the composite is smaller than that of Dy-α-sialon, and both Of them have predominately transgranular mode of fracture. It is believed that the decrease of the bending strength of Dy-α-sialon at elevated temperature is caused by the viscous flow of the grain boundary phase, while the addition of nanosize SiC particles effectively increases the viscosity of the grain boundary phase and therefore prevents the strength loss of Dy-α-sialon/nano-size SiC composites at elevated temperature

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2039KB)
    High performance SiC-AlN composites were fabricated by hot-pressing with Y2O3 as additive via liquid phase sintering. The SiC-AlN composites containing 5 vol. pct AlN exhibit superior mechanical properties with flexural strength, fracture toughness and Vickers hardness of 1131 MPa,6.1 MPa·m1/2 and 28.6 GPa respectively Microstructure observations indicate that the grain size of the composites is obviously inhibited due to the formation of solid solution. TEM-EDS analysis demonstrates the existence of the solid solution. In addition, subgrain boundaries induced by dislocations in the matrix SiC grains, seem to divide a large grain into numerous nano-sized small grains, which significantly increase the mechanical properties of the composites

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1051KB)
    The powder mixture of Al, Ti and graphite has been mechanically alloyed in a planetary ball mill.The structural evolution of as-milled powder sample has been characterized by XRD, DTA. The results show that the amorphous phase is formed first at an early milling stage, then crystallization occurs during further milling, leading to formation of a nanocrystalline fcc metastable phase. In contrast, during annealing the amorphous phase is crystallized to the equilibrium phase instead of the fcc phase. This indicates that crystallization during ball milling is different from that induced by annealing

    The rheological properties of slurries formed by different nano-size Y-TZP have been studied.The viscosity is sensitive to solid loading especially for high solid content level. The dispersant NH4PAA can improve the flowability efficiently. The smaller ceramic particles need to adsorb more dispersant to the flowability. Under the same solid content, the smaller the particles, the higher the viscosity of its slurry

    Highly supersaturated nanocrystalline fcc Fe60Cu40 alloy has been prepared by mechanical alloying of elemental powders. The phase transformation is monitored by X-ray diffraction (XRD),Mossbauer spectroscopy and extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS). The powder obtained after milling is of single fcc structure with grain size of nanometer order. The Mossbauer spectra of the milled powder can be fitted by two subspectra whose hyperfine magnetic fields are 16 MA/m and 20 MA/m while that of pure Fe disappeared. EXAFS results show that the radial structure function (RSF) of Fe K-edge changed drastically and finally became similar to that of reference Cu K-edge, while that of Cu K-edge nearly keeps unchanged in the process of milling. These imply that bcc Fe really transforms to fcc structure and alloying between Fe and Cu occurs truly on an atomic scale. EXAFS results indicate that iron atoms tend to segregate at the boundaries and Cu atoms are rich in the fcc lattice. Annealing experiments show that the Fe atoms at the interfaces are easy to cluster to α-Fe at a lower temperature, whereas the iron atoms in the lattice will form γ-Fe first at temperature above 350℃, and then transform to bcc Fe

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (194KB)
    Using DTA (difFerential thermal analysis) measurement on nanostructured TiO2, we find two endothermic peaks on the DTA curve. From XRD (X-ray diffraction) analysis of the original nanostructured TiO2 and its heat-treated samples, we obtain the following results: the first endothermic peak corresponds to the desorption of physical or chemical absorption, the second one is related to the structural phase transition from brookite to anatase then to rutile, and this structural phase transition is beneficial to the grain growth of nanocrystal

    A structure transition of Fe2O3 nanocrystal was studied by using DTA and TG thermal analysis and X-ray diffraction method. We found that size increase of the nanocrystals is larger after the structure transition than that before the transition. It means that the structure transition is beneficial on growth of nanocrystals

    ZrO2, CuO, Al2O3 and SiO2 mixed nanopowder was used to coat the head of sapphire single crystal fiber for improving the properties of high-temperature single crystal fiber sensor. The result indicates that the head coated with above mixed nanopowder shows better optical stability,shorter response time and higher thermal shock resistance, in comparison with the head coated with coarse-grained particles with the same chemical compositions
