Abstract

Eutectics are special materials which are both a MONOLITH and a MULTIPHASE MATERIAL [1]. Thanks to this and their product properties they might behave as metamaterials. In this work a new binary eutectic of ZnO-Bi2O3 system will be presented. Two types of microstructures has been obtained in this eutectic: globular and fibrous. The pattern phase is formed by ZnBi38O60. The quantitative analysis of the microstructure, luminescence and cathodoluminescence of the eutectic will be presented.
