A process for generating highly porous α-Al2O3 ceramics has been developed. In this paper, a combination of self-assembly and atomic layer deposition is demonstrated as a means to fabricate inverse alumina opals, which have their structures transformed via sintering. The resulting highly porous structure is stable even after a 4 h dwell time at 1400 °C, in contrast to structures generated by conventional powder metallurgy, sol-gel or colloidal powder suspension infiltration methods. TEM analysis reveals...
