Characterization of SiC whiskers
- 72 Downloads
The composition and microstructure of SiC whiskers from three different suppliers were studied to understand their physical and chemical properties. The following analytical methods were utilized: complete chemical analysis, morphological examination by scanning electron microscopy and by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, selected-area electron diffraction, X-ray diffraction, and thermogravimetric analysis of the oxidation rate of the three SiC whiskers at 1050‡C in oxygen and at 1150‡C in air.
