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 the strength of silicon carbide linear is superior to that of bulk silicon caride ceramics in terms of tensile or bending. 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 carrier silicon oxide or silicon oxide in several key aspects.
3. The field emission properties of nanosilicon carbide
SiC’s nanowire array features a low threshold voltage and turn-on potential, high current density, field emission performance and is therefore an excellent field emission 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 properties for 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-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 amorphous silicon, single-crystal porous silicon, or porous silicone carbide.
