Abstract

In this study different volume fractions of SiC particles of various sizes were introduced into the semisolid A356 aluminum alloy by a mechanical stirrer. Then the slurry was poured into a permanent die of certain dimensions either when the metal alloy was partially solid (semisolid-semisolid or SS route) or after reheating to above the liquidus temperature of the alloy (semisolid-liquid or SL route). Both the SS and SL composite samples were solution-treated at 520°C for 8 hours followed by quenching in water at room temperature. Microstructural characterization studies have been conducted on both the SL and SS samples to quantify the effects of the size andcontent of the SiC particles as well as the solutionizing treatment on the morphology and size ofthe eutectic silicon particles and the matrix grain (globule) size. The results were rationalized in terms of the different nucleation, fragmentation, spherodization and coarsening events, which had taken place during the processing of these composites. Finally the impact of these microstructural features in improving the wear properties of the composites has been discussed.

Abstract

Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZO) garnets are one of the promising materials as electrolytes for solid-state batteries. In this study, Li7-3xAlxLa3Zr2O12 (x= 0.22, 0.25, and 0.28) garnet is synthesized using the combustion sol-gel method to stabilize the cubic phase for higher ionic conductivity. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) results of as-synthesized powders reveal that by addition of 0.22 and 0.25 mole Al, the tetragonal phase still co-exist, whereas 0.28 mole Al addition resulted in a single cubic phase. Afterward, the as-synthesized powders are pressed and sintered at 1180°C for 10h. The hardness evaluation revealed that Al addition increases the hardness that shows better resistance against Li dendrite formation. Besides, the secondary electron microscopy results demonstrate that the dopant has not a huge impact on particle size and grain growth whereas the porosity content has been changed. Finally, the investigation of samples' electrochemical behavior reveals that the addition of Al increases the ionic conductivity of samples by increasing the density and stability of the cubic phase as well. The results declare that the 0.25 Al sample has the highest ionic conductivity. This behavior is thought to be due to the promotion of sintering and increment of bulk ionic conductivity by doping Al.
