Kinetics and Mechanisms of the Solid-State Sintering of Alkaline-Earth Titanates
Alkaline-earth-titanate-based electronic ceramics are widely used in the fabrication of modern products such as capacitors, varistors, thermistors, etc.1,2 The sintering of electronically active ceramics is one of most complicated and critical operations that determine the performance and cost characteristics of such products. To gain a deeper insight into the mechanisms of the sintering of the above materials and to explore the ways of promoting this process, we studied both experimentally and theoretically mass transfer processes in sintering alkaline-earth titanates.
