Nickel Oxide - Based Aligned Eutectics

  • Alexandre Revcolevschi


Because of their potentially interesting anisotropic properties, many directionally solidified eutectic materials have been studied in the past two decades. Mostly metallic systems have been investigated, the main purpose being the improvement of mechanical properties, particularly in the field of turbine blade alloys. More recently, various ceramic eutectic systems have been studied1 and some physical properties have also been examined1–3.
