Effect of TiC incorporation on the optical properties and oxidation resistance of SiC ceramics

Equipe LNER

The spectral selectivity and oxidation resistance of TiC–SiC composites were studied up to 500 °C, in air, and at various compositions. During heating, the emittance increased with the temperature. After heating, the TiC grains at the surface were oxidized to TiO2, while SiC grains showed good behaviour. However, despite little oxidation, the spectral selectivity of the nanocomposites remained interesting after heating.
