Fabrication, Mechanical Properties, and Electrical Conductivity of Co3O4 Ceramics
Abstract:Well-densified Co3O4 ceramics (98.3% of theoretical) have been fabricated by the combined use of hot pressing (800°C/I h/30 MPa) and hot isostatic pressing (880°C/2 h/196 MPa). Their Vickers hardness and fracture toughness are 10.3 GPa and 4.2 MPa·m1/2, respectively. They exhibit a high electrical conductivity of 3.35 × 10′ S·cm−1 at 800°C.
