Structural and morphological characterization of mullitic substrates obtained by dry-pressing

  • G. Celotti

In our previous work [1] a study has been described on the possibility of producing ceramic substrates for low-cost solar cells by means of the simple and cheap technology of moulding by dry-pressing. In the present paper, we shall deal with the structural and morphological properties of the above substrates. The study, which has been made by means of X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy, resulted in some useful information, which can be used for fully understanding the reasons for the macroscopic properties of the substrates, and thus for examining the possibility of modifying and improving them.
