(OP)
Hello,

Trying to search for some information about BeO ceramic materials for attenuators, and make use of their high thermal conductivity.

RE: Can anyone recommend the use of Beryllia use for attenuator?

I'd recommend to look for other materials. BeO has been banned for most applications due to severe health risks.

RE: Can anyone recommend the use of Beryllia use for attenuator?

BeO, while being thermally conductive, as a number of disadvantages

> Brittleness -- dropping the structure to the floor risks breakage
> Health hazard -- the dust from machining the material is hazardous and cannot be allowed to be breathed. Inhalation of the dust is liable to cause lung fibrosis.
