Eran Gross, Dana Benes Dahan and Wayne D. Kaplan, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Technion, Haifa


SEM micrograph of the fracture surface of a silicon carbide (6H - SiC) sintered with spark plasma sintering (SPS) at 2100°C for 30min with no sintering additives, showing a porous microstructure, as a part of a research on the sintering physics of silicon carbide ceramics. The image was taken using a FEG high resolution SEM with an in-lens secondary electrons detector.
