Abstract:The flash sintering process has been regarded as a noble method to densify ceramic materials. The distinctive feature of the flash sintering is the reduced sintering time which is caused by the electric field. In this study, flash sintering of the hydroxyapatite bioceramics was carried out at temperatures of 900-1200°C and electric fields of 500-1200 V/cm. Dense sintered sample was prepared in a short time within 10 seconds. Electric field required for flashing became reduced as the furnace temperature increas… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
