Abstract:

Pure oxide powders of aluminum, beryllium, and magnesium were formed into dense translucent compact bodies by hot pressing. The densities of the bodies were found to be more than 98 percent of the theoretical for the MgO, and more than 99.5 percent for the Al2O3 and the BeO. Thermal expansion was measured with a Leitz dilatometer. The data are in agreement with previous published values. Thermal conductivity, modulus of rupture, elastic properties, Youngs modulus, shear modulus, dielectric constants, and transmission spectra measurements also are presented. Author
