Conductivity and heat capacity of tranparent ceramics

  1. Jun 1, 2010 #1

    I want to study transparent alumina and zirconia and I wonder if they have the same conductivity and heat capacity than the dense and opaque materials ? As I can only find datas for the common materials (e.g. dense opaque ones) it would be great!
    My point of view is that the difference is mostly in the microstructure and the thermal properties shouldn't be that much upset. Is it correct?

    I forgot to notice that I need the evolution of this values with temperature. That's why it is quite hard to find datas.

    Thank you for your answers ;)
