2013 (English)In: Journal of Asian Ceramic Societies, ISSN 2187-0764, Vol. 1, no 4, 315-321 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
The progress of laser sintering of ceramics is reviewed by focusing on the principles and the potentials ofthis new technique as one member of a family of additive manufacturing technologies. After a brief intro-duction of the technology and the interaction between laser beam and ceramics, the characters of lasersintered ceramics are discussed in detail. The unique opportunities of achieving hierarchically structuredheterogeneities and non-equilibrium phase assemblages in bulk ceramics are illustrated. It reveals thatthe laser sintering is not only a feasible technology allowing net shape production of customized 3D partsin a single manufacturing operation but also a promising way for developing ceramics with structuresthat can hardly be made by conventional processing methods.
