Summary

The use of sol-gel processing for fabricating ceramics and composites is currently under investigation. Fourier transform infrared reflection spectroscopy appears to be ideally suited for characterizing reactions occurring during the sol-gel-ceramic transformations. Using this technique in combination with a diffuse reflectance stage and healed sample holder permits in-situ monitoring of the reactions from room temperature to 800°C.
