  1. 1. Tin whiskers: experiments and modelling

    Author : Johan Hektor; Hållfasthetslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tin whiskers; Intermetallics; Phase field models; X-Ray Diffraction;

    Abstract : Tin whiskers are hair-like single crystals that spontaneously grow from tin-coated surfaces. Whiskers are commonly found in electronic components, where tin coatings are used in, e.g., soldering applications, and to protect components from corrosion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Preparation and characterisation of refractory whiskers and selected alumina composites

    Author : Mats Carlsson; Mats Johnsson; Tor Grande; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; VLS-growth; Characterisation; Whiskers; Sintering; Ceramic composites; Inorganic chemistry; Oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : A whisker is a common name of single crystalline inorganic fibre of small dimensions, typically 0.5-1 μm in diameter and 20-50 μm in length. Whiskers are mainly used as reinforcement of ceramics. This work describes the synthesis and characterisation of new whisker types. READ MORE

  3. 3. Grain Morphology and Intergranular Structure of Si3N4 and Al2O3 Based Ceramics

    Author : Håkan Björklund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : whiskers; stereology; electron microscopy; sintering; silicon nitride; quantitative microscopy; grain growth; ceramics; microstructure; aluminium oxide;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns factors controlling the grain morphology in Si3N4 and Al2O3 based ceramics. The microstructures of the ceramics were characterized by scanning electron microscopy in combination with quantitative microscopy and stereologic methods. READ MORE
