Acheson, Silicon Carbide, and the Electric Arc
(The Electrochemical Society, 2017-03-15)
This historical article looks at the technological discovery of Edward Goodrich Acheson of silicon carbide as one of the number of technological discoveries of the end of 19th century based on the use of electricity and ...
Luminescent Er3+doped transparent alumina ceramics
We report on successful preparation of Er3+doped transparent alumina (0.1–0.17 at.%) exhibiting visible light photoluminescence using wet shaping method and hot isostatic pressing. The effects of dopantamount, type of ...
Luminescent Eu3+-doped transparent alumina ceramics with high hardness
The Eu3+-doped transparent aluminas were prepared by wet shaping technique followed by pressureless sintering and hot isostatic pressing. The effect of dopant amount on microstructure, real in-line transmission (RIT), ...
Optical, mechanical and fractographic response of transparent alumina ceramics on erbium doping
Alumina ceramics found their utilisation in many applications which can be further extend by attaining functional properties; in our case the transparency obtained through precise processing and photoluminescence due to ...
