The Effect of Crystal Orientation on Thermal Shock-induced Fracture and Properties of Ion Implated Sapphire

Gurarie, V N; Otsuka, P H; Jamieson, David Norman; Williams, James; Conway, Martin


Ion beam modification of thermal shock resistance of sapphire single crystals with various crystallographic faces is experimentally investigated. The temperature threshold of fracture is determined in both implanted and unimplanted crystals by measuring the fragment contraction on cooling from fracture temperature. Optical and SEM microscopy are used to analyse fracture morphology and thermal shock behaviour on the (0 0 0 1), (1 1̄ 0 2) and (1 1 2̄ 0) faces in sapphire crystals implanted with...[Show more]
