Abstract

The structure of TiO2 nanocrystalline ceramics prepared from two types of nanopowders by shock compression followed by sintering in a conventional resistance furnace or via microwave heating is investigated by x-ray diffraction, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and thermal phonon kinetics. The results demonstrate that microwave sintering ensures a denser ceramic microstructure as compared to conventional sintering. Data are presented on the structure and thickness of intergranular films in the titania ceramics prepared by the two sintering processes.
