Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


New high temperature ceramic eutectic composites have been obtained. The composite is self-assembled in one quick step by rapid supercooling of the multioxide alumina-YAG-zirconia eutectic in an arc-image lamp furnace. The new material will find applications as in-situ coating and component for use at ultra-high temperature. Periodic self-assembled layered structures kinetically forced to solidify with interspacing in the submicron range will result in very interesting properties and applications for high temperature multioxide oxide eutectic composites, offering the challenge of design of layered nanostructures tailored to specific applications by kinetic control during solidification.
