They were then characterized by using scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, small-angle X-ray scattering, and X-ray diffraction. This new mesophase was identified and indexed as a body-centered orthorhombic mesophase structure with the (001) plane parallel to the substrate. It may well originate from a body-centered tetragonal structure, orienting with the square base perpendicular to the substrate. The mesophase then underwent a uniaxial contraction in the direction normal to the substrate upon drying and thermal treatment. As a result, the in-plane parameters were preserved whereas the out-of-plane parameters were markedly reduced by heating. © 2009 The American Ceramic Society.||Source Title:||Journal of the American Ceramic Society||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/86353||ISSN:||00027820||DOI:||10.1111/j.1551-2916.2009.03027.x|
