Abstract
DIRECT SYNTHESIS OF NBAL ALLOY FOILS BY CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION ONTO INERT SUBSTRATES IS PROPOSED. INORGANIC, I.E. HALIDE, AND MIXED INORGANIC/ORGANOMETALLIC SOURCE GASES WILL BE USED TO SYNTHESIZE PURE NB, PURE AL, AND INTERMETALLIC COMPOUNDS NB3AL AND SEVERAL COMPOSITIONS BRACKETING NBAL3. DEPOSITS WILL BE CHARACTERIZED IN DETAIL BY MICROSTRUCTURAL EXAMINATION, MICROCHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND MICROMECHANICAL TESTING FOR COMPARISON TO RAPIDLY SOLIDIFIED POWDERDERIVED ALLOYS OF SIMILAR COMPOSITIONS. ON THE BASIS OF THE RESULTS OBTAINED, PROCESS CONDITIONS CAN BE ESTABLISHED FOR FOLLOW-ON EFFORTS WHICH WOULD INCLUDE DIRECT SYNTHESIS OF TERNARY OR HIGHER ALLOYS BASED ON NBAL3.
