In this work, we report on the growth and characterization of polycrystalline BiFeO 3 (BFO) thin films deposited on indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass substrates via the chemical solution deposition technique. The as-deposited films were crystallized by heat treatment at various temperatures for...
TiB 2 -based cermets are prepared by combustion synthesis followed by a pressing stage in a granulate medium. Products obtained by combustion synthesis are characterized by a large remaining porosity (typically 50%). To produce dense cermets, a subsequent densification step is performed after the...
The phase transformations as a function of the temperature of two natural illitic clays were investigated through XRD measurements, ex situ at room temperature with conventional set up and in situ with synchrotron radiation, in order to understand the origin of the corundum phase, which is one of...
