The addition of metal powders produced by electric-pulse sputtering is examined as a possible way to activate sintering of conventional and plasma-chemical oxide systems. Since the metal particles have an extremely small size and large specific surface area, it is possible to assure sufficiently uniform distribution of the metal over the surface of the oxide particles when such systems are mixed. The high energy of the metal powders promotes the formation of contact zones and enhances the strength of the sinter.
