Abstract
Addition of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) to polycrystalline ceramics is currently considered as a potential method for improving their mechanical properties, mainly their fracture toughness. High density composites produced by the addition of relatively small volume fractions of MWCNTs (0–2 vol.%) to 3 mol% yttria doped zirconia (3Y-TZP) have been produced by spark plasma sintering, resulting in a homogeneous distribution of MWCNTs with a small average matrix grain size in the range 153...
