Abstract : Our efforts over the last three months have been focused on doing preliminary set-up work vital for future success on this research project. Several key components were designed and added to the tubular flow reactor, used in the synthesis of our nanocrystalline Si3N4, and two pieces of equipment used for processing our material, a sintering furnace and a hot press, were designed and constructed.
