Application of silicon carbide nanomaterials

High thermal conductivity of Silicon carbide nanomaterials has many outstanding characteristics. The wide range of applications for electronic and optoelectronic devices made out silicon carbide single crystals is extensive. They can be used in special environments like aerospace, radio communications, cars, oil drilling, high-temperature radiation, as well as automobiles. The unique optical and electrical properties of silicon carbide single crystals are also very useful in many other fields.
1. Its application in composite materials and the mechanical properties of nanosilicon carbide
Silicon carbide whiskers possess excellent qualities such as high strength, hardness, elastic modulus and lightweight. This material is widely used in many industries, such as aerospace, chemical, and the chemical industry. The “King of Whiskers”, for good applications, is also known. Researchers have measured and calculated the mechanical properties in microscopic fields of one single whisker. Study results have demonstrated that linear silicon carbide has a higher tensile or bending strength than bulk silicon carbide ceramics. The carbide silicon nanowires have broad applications and can be used in composite materials reinforcements.
The propellers on helicopters can be strengthened to make them more resistant to air.
2. Carrier for nanosilicon carbide or catalyst
High specific surface areas have always been a key property of catalyst carriers that should be studied. Because of its excellent performance, silicon carbide’s high specific surface area is more efficient than any other catalyst carriers. SiC material outperforms traditional carriers such as silicon oxide or silica. The advantages of SiC material are largely reflected in these aspects: 1) High thermal conductivity and strong resistance to heat; 2) High chemical stability; (3) high mechanical strength and not easy to fracture; 4) Low thermal expansion rate.
3. The field emission properties of nanosilicon carbide
SiC’s nanowire array features a low turn-on and threshold voltage, high current densities, excellent field emission performance and is therefore an ideal cathode material. The stable chemical properties of SiC nanowire array, as well as high temperatures and high-pressure resistances, corrosion resistance, among other properties, make it a popular choice in the field microelectronics devices.
4. Optoelectronic characteristics of nano silicon carbide
Another luminescent material that was discovered is silicon carbide. In a low-temperature environment, silicon carbide can emit blue light. The wide bandgap characteristic of silicon carbide is used to create blue-like light emitting diodes. Its indirect bandgap properties make it very difficult to produce blue-like light emitting diodes. Also, the stability of silicon carbide is poor. The luminous efficiency of this material is low and limits its applications. Numerous improvements have been made in order to increase the luminous efficiency and availability of silicon carbide, such as the production of porous silicon cobble, single-crystal silicon cabride, or amorphous silicon cobble.
