Silicon Carbide Beam offer outstanding high-temperature flexural strength and thermal shock resistance. In addition, they also demonstrate excellent oxidation resistance as well as being compatible with a wide variety of chemical environments.
Experimental results comparing 1.24 um 4H-SiC XBPMs with commercial 12 um PC-diamond XBPMs demonstrate uniform transparency and fast dynamics within measurement error (systematic plus random). Furthermore, an unbiased device exhibits linear response to photon flux across four orders of magnitude.
High Temperature Strength
Silicon carbide beam are integral parts of many industrial kilns and heat treatment processes. Made of robust high-strength materials that can withstand extreme temperatures while resisting chemical attack and oxidation, silicon carbide beams remain strong under extreme temperatures while showing minimal creep. Their exceptional structural integrity makes them the ideal choice for use in demanding applications where structural integrity must remain paramount.
Silicon Carbide Ceramics can be created through various processes, such as direct sintering, reaction bonding, recrystallization sintering and microwave sintering. Each technique creates products with diverse shapes and dimensions containing tight tolerances – perfect for various applications across cross sections, wall thicknesses and lengths.
Manufacturing starts by mixing raw materials together at the desired ratio. After being formed into a preliminary green body using pressure and high temperature, this mixture is dried to remove moisture and increase density before being sintered in a high-temperature sintering furnace. Finally, once sintered, final products undergo further processing until reaching their desired dimensions and surface finish.
4H-SiC XBPMs have shown great radiation resistance when exposed to high-energy particle irradiation. They have even managed to withstand high-energy ion radiation without damage at elevated operating temperatures; however, due to its lower absorption coefficient diamond remains the superior material choice for such applications.
High-energy ions passing through the sensor interact with electrons present in SiC materials to produce electron-hole pairs that drift across the device, producing a detectable current at the electrodes of the sensor device. Their drift is proportional to their velocity; hence it can be related to where an ion beam may have passed in relation to a sample.
Silicon carbide’s high-temperature strength can be enhanced by strengthening the interface between its enhanced phase and matrix. Enhancing interfacial energy, adding sacrificial phases to reduce matrix loss and increasing thermal conductivity to avoid local overheating are among the most effective measures for increasing high-temperature strength.
Excellent Thermal Conductivity
Silicon carbide’s excellent thermal conductivity makes it an excellent material choice for sensors operating in harsh environments, where particles irradiation is high and temperatures reach extremes. Silicon carbide has the potential to replace or at least complement traditional silicon-based materials in these applications as it features wide bandgap semiconductor technology combined with superior mechanical properties and thermal shock resistance.
Silicon carbide’s insulating properties can be leveraged to enhance the performance of ion beam detectors. Silicon carbide’s presence helps shield sensitive areas of detectors from incident beams, prolonging operational lifetime and increasing ability to detect high energy particles. Furthermore, its chemical stability means it can even be used in harsh environments.
An innovative method has been devised to measure in-plane k of 3C-SiC thin films using beam-offset time-domain thermoreflectance (BO-TDTR). This technique utilizes optical limiting effect caused by heat diffusion at the film/substrate interface to detect radiation-induced thermal response; which can then be measured as the difference between BO-TDTR signal and its reflection.
This measurement technique is particularly suitable for obtaining the k of SiC films as differences in optical limiting function differences correspond directly with thermal diffusivity as indicated in Fig. 4. 3C-SiC has an optical limiting function 2.7 times higher than 2G-SiC and shows greater thermal diffusion than its counterpart material, suggesting it to have much faster thermal diffusion properties than its 2G equivalent material.

IPS Ceramics provides all sorts of refractory and industrial ceramic products including high voltage electrical porcelain, sanitary porcelain filters and quartz crucibles, among others.

Excellent Chemical Resistance
Silicon carbide beam are essential components in many industrial applications. Their excellent mechanical and thermal properties, as well as resistance to radiation damage make SiC beams an attractive option in harsh environments. Their production process, surface finish and composition all play key roles in their performance characteristics.
SiC is known for its superior oxidation resistance and can withstand oxygen-rich environments where other materials would quickly degrade. Furthermore, SiC’s chemical inertness enables it to withstand aggressive chemicals such as alkalis and molten salts without incurring degradation; making it an excellent choice in steel manufacturing facilities, petroleum refineries, mining operations, aerospace industries etc.
SiC is designed to withstand exposure to high energies and temperatures without suffering degradation, making it particularly valuable in applications where sensors are exposed to ion beams or other sources of electromagnetic interference. SiC’s radiation tolerance also makes it suitable for harsh environment applications like particle irradiation sensors.
SiC’s radiation tolerance depends on both its material composition and amount of silicon infused into its matrix, where minority silicon forms carbides that protect its underling material from being damaged by ion beams. A study on scratch resistances of irradiated SiC samples indicated that penetration depth decreases with increasing effective areal density (the proportion of area covered by SiC).

Silicon (Si) anode materials have gained much interest as anode materials for lithium-ion batteries due to its extremely high theoretical specific capacity, yet managing volume expansion has posed a great challenge to their use as they expand significantly during lithiation and delithiation processes.
We developed an in situ self-assembly and magnesium reduction approach to create anode materials with controlled volume expansion, thus providing longer battery life without compromising high temperature performance requirements for LIBs.
As part of our research, we have fabricated and characterized thin SiC membranes for radiation hard X-ray beam position monitors (XBPMs). Device simulations and experimental results indicate that 4H-SiC p-n junctions can reach saturated charge collection efficiency at zero external bias while sc-diamond requires higher bias levels to do the same job, showing SiC is an alternative material choice with advantages such as superior mechanical properties and chemical resistance compared with its competitor material, potentially offering cost savings as well as potential cost savings when used for future high temperature applications.
