New Publication – Acoustic emission during nano-impact of alumina and partially stabilised zirconia

Micro Materials and collaborators from Palacký University Olomouc, Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials, Olomouc are pleased to present our latest publication in Materials Science & Engineering A: High frequency acoustic emission monitoring in nano-impact of alumina and partially stabilised zirconia

In this study acoustic emission monitoring has been used to investigate the fracture of alumina and MgO-partially stabilised zirconia (PSZ) at high strain rate in repetitive nano-impact tests.

High frequency acoustic emission monitoring during nano-mechanical tests provides valuable additional information to improve our understanding of material behaviour at the nano-scale. To find out more, see our recent acoustic emission tech note.
