Boron Nitride with Packets of Nanotubes for Microcomposite Ceramics

Boron Nitride with Packets of Nanotubes for Microcomposite Ceramics The possibility of creating microcomposite technical ceramics based on boron pyronitride (BPN) with nanotubes and packets of nanotubes providing a high microplasticity is considered. It is shown that the irradiation by nanosecond proton-ion beams with a high powder density promotes the growth of wurtzite-like BPN based on self-organizing mesoscopic (SOM) particles, SOM-blocks, and nanocrystalline particles. The sizes of SOM-particles and SOM-blocks of the initial and irradiated BPN are determined. The self-organization of nanotubes outside the zone of irradiation has a spiral cyclic nature and is caused by shear deformations of the layers composed of SOM-blocks. Tubes inclined to the surface with symmetry axes of the fifth order and packets of nanotubes of a disk shape are observed. The obtained micrographs are compared with model forms of manifestation of spiral cyclic structures. Refractories and Industrial Ceramics Springer Journals
