Summary

Mullite (3Al2O3*2SiO2) and YAG (Y3Al5O12) fibers were pulled out from deeply undercooled melts using a CO2 laser. The as-pulled fibers were amorphous. The tensile strengths and microstructures of mullite fibers were examined before and after recrystallization. The fracture behavior and composition distribution of YAG fiber on fracture surfaces were observed using SEM and EDS.
