High temperature deformability of ductile flash-sintered ceramics via in-situ compression

The first in-situ microcompression test on flash sintered YSZ performed inside SEM at elevated temperature (~ 600 degree C) revealed that a high density of dislocation generated during flash event facilitates a ductile behavior at intermediate temperature (400 degree C).
