Abstract

We fabricated the AlN substrate using tape casting method and investigated the effect of carbon content on sinterability and thermal conductivity. The carbon residue content was measured after the debinding of the AlN green sheet containing 1 wt% Ca–Al–Si–O glass (CAS glass) in the range of 300–1000°C in atmospheres of air, N2, vacuum, and wet N2. The carbon residue content was 0.21 wt% after debinding in the wet N2 atmosphere at 800°C, 0.59 wt% after debinding at 1000°C in the N2 atmosphere, and 1.1 wt% after debinding in the N2 atmosphere at 700°C. The debinded specimen was sintered at 1850°C for 3 h in the N2 atmosphere. As a result, when the residual carbon content was 0.2 wt%, the bulk density was found to be highest with 3.22 g/cm3, and the thermal conductivity was 93 W/m∙K. When the residual carbon content was 0.59 wt%, the bulk density was almost the same at 3.21 g/cm3, and the thermal conductivity was significantly increased to 161 W/m∙K. When the residual carbon content was 1.1 wt%, the bulk density was 2.71 g/cm3, and the thermal conductivity was 60 W/m∙K, degrading the sintered properties.
