Development of NMR Imaging Probes for Advanced Ceramics
Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI) holds the potential for the non-destructive evaluation of ceramics and for the improvement of ceramic processing in general. It can provide valuable diagnostic information about the spatial variations of binders, plasticizers, sintering aids, deflocculants, and other organics in injection-molded and slip-cast green ceramics. Poor distribution of these organics, after subsequent processing steps such as sintering, hot isostatic pressing, and machining, can lead to final parts that are defective and/or with poor mechanical properties.
