Abstract:

ONE OF THE MECHANISMS WHICH HARDENS A MATERIAL AGAINST HEL RADIATION IS THE PRESENCE OF A SURFACE REFLECTING LAYER. A PROMISING CANDIDATE IN THIS REGARD IS CARBON FELT LOADED WITH A REFRACTORY METAL OR COMPOUND WHOSE SURFACE MELTS UNDER HEL MELTS UNDER HEL RADIATION. WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY INFILTRATED CARBON FELT WITH REFRACTORY MATERIALS BY MEANS OF CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION. WE PROPOSE AN INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE FOR ACHIEVING A UNIFORM LOADING OF TUNGSTEN CARBIDE WITHIN A LAYER OF CARBON FELT, WHICH PERFORMS THE MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS OF RIGIDIZING AND STRENGTHENING THE FELT, PROVIDING A HIGH REFLECTIVE MELT SURFACE AND HIGH HEAT CAPACITY AND MINIMIZING THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY.
