Zirconia nanoparticles stabilized with yttria
are used to solve this problem.
Examples of specific topics discussed in the volume include low-temperature fabrication of polycrystalline yttrium aluminum garnet powder via a mechanochemical solid reaction of nanocrystalline yttria
with transition alumina, formation of hollow zinc oxide by oxidation and subsequent thermal treatment, antifungal effectiveness of nanosilver colloid against rose powdery mildew in greenhouses, reflectometry studies of mesoporous silica thin films, methane storage on surface modified activated carbons, and thermal behaviors and fracture toughness of polyurethane- dispersed difunctional epoxy resins.
2, a yttria
stabilized zirconia media belonging to the ceramic bead range including ER120, Rimax and ZirStar.
In the present work, an in vitro drug release of two drug loaded forms (punched pellet and alginate beads) of the zirconia and yttria
stabilized zirconia is studied.
According to ESL, the new ScSZ ceramic exhibits improved ionic conductivity and mechanical strength, with a coefficient of thermal expansion nearly equivalent to that of yttria
stabilized zirconia (YSZ).
Fabricated from tungsten, rhenium or iridium, the filaments are available in straight, hairpin, "V" shape, spiral or special configurations with yttria
or thoria coatings and plain ends or platinum tabs for ease of welding.
slurry was made using an yttria
flour with average particle diameter of 15 mm according to the first run in Table 1.
has obtained a metallic article having a thermal barrier coating system thereon, comprised of a metallic substrate having a composition comprised of nickel; and a thermal barrier coating on a surface of the metallic substrate, the thermal barrier coating comprised of, a metal-ceramic mixture, the metal-ceramic mixture comprised of yttria
stabilized zirconia dispersed with aluminum particles, nickel-aluminum inter-metallic phases interposed between the metal-ceramic mixture and the surface of the metallic substrate, the nickel-aluminum intermetallic phases formed by a diffusion process between the metal-ceramic mixture and the metallic substrate.
The zirconia yielded in this research is transformed to cubic structure as a result of increasing yttria
content and to tetragonal structure at the presence of 3 wt% of yttria
The ability of the yttria
coating to reduce cost-of-ownership while improving device yields provides a significant competitive advantage for critical process applications, the two companies said.
Additionally, NanoDynamics has developed transparent IR windows using nanocrystalline yttria
for missile applications, and a plasma spraying technique to synthesize proprietary ceramics for use in the production of lightweight, durable combat armor.
The ability of yttria
to simultaneously reduce cost of ownership while improving device yields provides a significant competitive advantage for critical process applications.
