 기상합성법에 의한 $beta$-SiC 초미분말 합성 및 특성 어경훈, 이승호, 유용호, 소명기 강원대학교 재료공학과 Synthesis and Characterization of Ultrafine $beta$-SiC Powder by Vapor Phase Reaction ABSTRACT Ultrafine ${beta}$-SiC powders were synthesized by the vapor phase reaction of TMS[Si(CH3)4] in hydrogen The reaction temperature and TMS concentration were varied from 1000 to 1400$^{circ}C$ and from 1 to 10% respectively. The average particle size and phase of the powders were analyzed by TEM and XRD. Ultrafine ${beta}$-SiC powders were synthesized above 1000$^{circ}C$ and the crystallinity of the powders increased with increasing reaction temperature. Shape of the particles were spherical and had average size of about 20 nm which showed no difference as the reaction temperature and TMS concentration increased. From the FT-IR analysis the absorption bands of Si-C of the powders shifted to higher wavenumber as the reaction temperature increased,. Under the condition of total gas flow above 1500cc/min ${beta}$-SiC and poly-Si powders were obtained simultaneously. The Si-O bond intensity was increased under the condition of total gas flow rate above 1000cc/min which might be due to oxidation formed on poly-Si. Key words: Ultrafine, ${\beta}$-SiC powder, TMS, Vapor phase reaction.
