Abstract

Recent work in Selective Laser Sintering of ceramics at the University of Texas at Austin demonstrates the capability to produce zirconia parts with fine features. Zirconia powder was pre-processed into spherical particles, laser sintered with a sacrificial polymer binder, infiltrated and post-sintered to higher density. Optical micrographs show that hole sizes of 180 /-tm are possible in fully ceramic components.
