Despite numerous studies over five decades, the mechanism controlling creep in fine grained alumina has not yet been identified unambiguously. Compression creep experiments in alumina and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) re-inforced alumina composites reveal that the creep at high stresses is not influenced by the presence of CNTs at grain boundaries. All data at high stresses are consistent with a Coble diffusion creep mechanism and a stress exponent of one, and an interface controlled diffusion creep process at lower stresses with a stress exponent greater than one. This is similar to earlier observations in fine grained yttria stabilized tetragonal zirconia. Based on a recent study on Al tracer grain boundary diffusion, analysis of the data in terms of cation and anion diffusion along grain boundaries suggests that creep is controlled by the slower O diffusion along grain boundaries.
