3 May 2017 Strength characteristics of transparent alumina and spinel ceramics
Author Affiliations +
Transparent ceramics are finding increasing use in optical applications with demanding operating conditions. Polycrystalline ceramics provide a unique combination of mechanical, dielectric and optical properties for sensor window applications that were previously not possible. The mechanical strength of CeraNova’s transparent alumina and spinel was measured by an equibiaxial strength test method. The results of the tests and their analysis, included those at elevated temperatures for transparent alumina, will be presented.
