Abstract

Isothermal growth of β-Si3N4 crystals dispersed in a series of rare-earth (RE = Y, Gd, Nd and La) oxynitride liquids (RE-Mg-Si-O-N) was studied after heat treatment at 1773 K for 64 to 512 min, The microstructural characterization of α- and β-Si3N 4 crystals was quantitatively analyzed by electron microscopy, The volume fraction of β-Si3N4 crystals in oxynitride glasses increased with heat treatment time, It is determined that the rate of α/β transformation in the oxynitride liquid with Y2O 3 additive can be faster than that in oxynitride liquids with other additives, Likewise, the radii of rare-earth elements make significant differences in the mean grain size and aspect ratio of β-Si 3N4 crystals, In all cases mentioned above, a marked change was observed in the order of ionic radius from La to Y, The mean width of the needlelike β-Si3N4 crystals heat-treated with La2O3 additive was almost constant in the time range of heat treatment in this study. However, the aspect ratio of β-Si 3N4 crystals with La2O3 additive was found to be much larger than that in oxynitride liquids with other additives, indicating negligible growth of β-prism plane.
