  • Aluminum alloy matrix composites reinforced with various amounts of SiC particles have been produced by rheo-compocasting followed by hot extrusion. A relatively uniform distribution of SiC particles in the composites was obtained. The amounts of pore and SiC particles cluster were relatively small in the composites. Particle free zones were observed in the hot extruded composites when the amount of SiC particles was less than 20 vol%. However, the width of particle free zone decreases with the increase of SiC particle content. Eutectic Si phase play an important role for improving bonding between SiC particle and matrix. Tensile and yield strength increased with the increase of SiC particle content. the strenthening effect of SiC particle addition was effective even at relatively high temperature of 573 K.

  • Influence of interfacial structure between matrix and particle in A356/coated SiC composite fabricated by squeeze casting method was studied. Experimental variables are types of coated metallic film on SiC particles such as Cu, Ni-P, and applied pressure for squeeze casting. It was found that coating treatment on SiC particles improves the wetting of liquid A356 alloy on SiC particles. SiC particle distribution is very homogeneous in A356 matrix alloy which is fabricated by squeeze casting. Analysing the surface morphology of fractured A356/coated SiC, it was concluded that metallic thin film by coating treatment on SiC particle improves the interfacial bonding between particle and matrix, and so does on mechanical properties such as tensile strength. However, there was on significant difference in hardness between those composite made of as-received SiC particle and coated SiC particle.

  • The fabrication process and mechanical properties of SiC particle prefrrms with high volume fraction ranged 50∼71% were investigated to make metal matrix composites for possible applications as heat sinks in electronic packares. The SiC particle preforms with 50∼71vol% of reinforcement were fabricated by a new modified process named ball milling and pressing method. The SiC particle performs were fabricated by ball milling of SiC particles with single sized of 48${\mu}$m in diameter or two different size of 8${\mu}$m and 48${\mu}$min diameter, with collodal SiO2 as inorgnic binder in distilled water, and the mixed slurries were cold pressed for consolidation into final prefom. The compressive strengths og calcined SiC particle prefoms increased from 20MPa to 155MPa with increasing the content of inorganis binder, temperature and time for calcination. The increase of compressive strength of SiC particle bridge the interfaces of two neighboring SiC particles.

  • The aim of this work is to show the way of manufacturing the SiC mechanical seal at the low temperature of 130$0^{\circ}C$ using clay and frit as source of secondary phase. $\alpha$-SiC and $\beta$-SiC powder which showed different distribution of particle were used as starting materials, i.e. average particle size of $\alpha$-SiC was larger than that of $\beta$-SiC. The mechanical and tribological properties of two groups of specimen, i.e. one contained mainly larger $\alpha$-SiC powder and the other mainly fine particle $\beta$-SiC, were measured. The specimen consisted of larger $\alpha$-SiC exhibited lower density flexural strength and wear resistance is comparison with these of sample containning mainly $\beta$-SiC . This difference could be originated from the dependence of capillary force on the particle size. For the larger SiC particle, the liquid phase may not fill the whole pores during sintering, due to low capillary force, whereas the liquid phase can infiltrate into the small ores surrounded small $\beta$-SiC particle. Thus, the course of high flexural strength and high wear resistance of specimen prepared using small particles can be explaced from the easy infiltration of liquid phase.

  • In this study, Liquid Phase Sintered SiC (LPS-SiC) was fabricated by hot pressing method with $\beta$-SiC powder whose a particle size is 30nm and less on the average in argon condition at 1780 and $1800^{\circ}C$ under 20MPa. Alumina ($Al_2O_3$), yttria ($Y_2O_3$) and silica ($SiO_2$) were used for sintering additives. To investigate effects of particle-size and temperature on $SiO_2$, LPS-SiC was fixed $Al_2O_3$, $Y_2O_3$ and then particle-size of $SiO_2$ were changed as two kinds. The system of particle-size and temperature on sintering additives which affects a property of sintering os well os the influence depending on particle-size and temperature of sintering additives were investigated by measurement of sintering properties. Such as measurement of sintering density, vikers hardness and observing of microstructure were investigated to make sure of the optimum condition which is about matrix of $SiC_f/SiC$ composites. Base on the composition of sintering additives, microstructure and sintering property correlation, the effect of particle-size of sintering additives are discussed. An experimental method to investigate the dynamic characteristics of bums in extreme environmental condition is established.

  • ${\beta}$-SiC powders were synthesized by a carbothermal reduction process using $SiO_2$-C precursors fabricated by a sol-gel process using phenol resin and TEOS as starting materials for carbon and Si sources, respectively. The C/Si molar ratio was selected as an important parameter for synthesizing SiC powders using a sol-gel process, and the effects of the C/Si molar ratio (1.4-3.0) on the particle size, particle size distribution, and yield of the synthesized ${\beta}$-SiC powders were investigated. It was found that (1) the particle size of the synthesized ${\beta}$-SiC powders decreased with an increase in the C/Si molar ratio in the $SiO_2$-C hybrid precursors, (2) the particle size distribution widened with an increase in the C/Si molar ratio, and (3) the yield of the ${\beta}$-SiC powder production increased with an increase in the C/Si molar ratio.

  • To fabricate porous SiC-Si composites for heating element applications, both SiC powders and Si powders were mixed and sintered together. The properties of the sintered SiC-Si body were investigated as a function of SiC particle size and/or Si particle contents from 10 wt% to 40 wt%, respectively. Porous SiC-Si composites were fabricated by Si bonded reaction at a sintering temperature of $1650^{\circ}C$ for 80 min. The microstructure and phase analysis of SiC-Si composites that depend on Si particle contents were characterized using scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffraction. The electrical resistivity of SiC-Si composites was also evaluated using a 4-point probe resistivity method. The electrical resistivity of the sintered SiC-Si body sharply decreased as the amount of Si addition increased. We found that the electrical resistivity of porous SiC-Si composites is closely related to the amount of Si added and at least 20 wt% Si are needed in order to apply the SiCSi composites to the heating element.

  • In this paper, we investigate the quality difference of SiC crystals grown by a conventional physical vapor transport method using various SiC powders. While the growth rate was revealed to be dependent upon the particle size of the SiC powder, the growth rate of SiC bulk crystals grown using SiC powder with a smaller particle size (20 nm) was definitely higher than those using lager particle sizes with $0.1-0.2\;{\mu}m$ and $1-10\;{\mu}m$, respectively. All grown 2 inch SiC single crystals were proven to be the polytype of 6H-SiC and the carrier concentration levels of about $10^{17}\;cm^3$ were determined from Hall measurements. It was revealed that the particle size and process method of SiC powder played an important role in obtaining a good quality, high growth rate, and to reduce growth temperature.

  • High-purity ${\beta}-SiC$ powders for SiC single-crystal growth were synthesized by direct carbonization. The use of high-purity raw materials to improve the quality of a SiC single crystal is important. To grow SiC single crystals by the PVT method, both the particle size and the packing density of the SiC powder are crucial factors that determine the sublimation rate. In this study, we tried to produce high-purity ${\beta}-SiC$ powder with large particle sizes and containing low silicon by introducing a milling step during the direct carbonization process. Controlled heating improved the purity of the ${\beta}-SiC$ powders to more than 99 % and increased the particle size to as much as ${\sim}100{\mu}m$. The ${\beta}-SiC$ powders were characterized by SEM, XRD, PSA, and chemical analysis to assess their purity. Then, we conducted single-crystal growth experiments, and the grown 4H-SiC crystals showed high structural perfection with a FWHM of about 25-48 arcsec.
