TEM Characterization of Textured Alumina Produced by Templated Grain Growth (TGG)

Abstract

Current interest in polycrystalline ceramics having properties that reflect anisotopic characteristics inherent to their single crystal forms has led to development of new processing techniques for producing textured microstructures. One such technique is Templated Grain Growth (TGG), which has been developed and used successfully by Messing and co-workers to produce highly textured bodies of alumina and other materials.[1} For alumina, their processingscheme and the evolution of textured microstructures have been detailed elsewhere.[e.g. 1,2]
