Silicon Carbide and Silicon Nitride Ceramics for Passive Structural Components in Avionics, Space and Mechanical Engineering

Silicon nitride and silicon carbide components for avionics, space and mechanical engineering are described. These lightweight stiff and strong materials with low and very low CTE and high thermal conductivity provide means for new designs and higher resolution in passive structures for optical instruments and wear resistant parts for mechanical engineering. Material properties and application examples are discussed.
