Misoriented interphase boundary between h-BN and SiC grains
The micrograph shows misoriented interphase boundary between h-BN (precipitate) and SiC grains (within a silicon nitride particulate-reinforced silicon carbide composite). The occurrence of BN inclusions results from the introduction of colloidal BN into the hot isostatic pressing process. They are formed from B2O3 present as a thin surface film on the BN particles in the barrier layer. B2O3 will be molten during the pressing process and will diffuse rapidly into the powder compact and react wit
