Hot-pressed polycrystalline yttrium iron garnet


A simple hot-pressing system is described which enables small volumes of polycrystalline yttrium iron garnet to be routinely produced. The products have high density, very low second phase content and a controlled grain size. Their magnetic properties compare very favourably with similar polycrystalline material produced by conventional sintering. Sample porosity may be varied in a controlled manner by simple changes in pressing conditions.
