Abstract
CHEMICAL VAPOR DESPOSITION (CVD) IS THE ONLY DEPOSITION PROCESS WHICH HAS THE SPEED NECESSARY FOR BUILDING UP STRUCTURES. DEPOSITS TEND TO BE EPITAXIAL. BOTH THESE CHARACTERISTICS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR FABRICATING NANOMETER COMPOSITES, WHICH PROMISE TO COMBINE THE MECHANICAL ADVANTAGES OF METALS WITH THE ADVANTAGES OF CERAMICS, WITH NONE OF THE DISADVANTAGES. TO ACHIEVE SHARP POTENTIAL BOUNDARIES AND TO SATISFY A BUILDUP RATE OF 24 MICROMETER/H REQUIRES SWITCHING FROM METAL DEPOSITION CONDITIONS TO CERAMIC DEPOSITION CONDITIONS WITH NO OVERLAP WITHIN AN INTERVAL OF LESS THAN ONE SECOND. A METHOD FOR DOING THIS IS PROPOSED. A SAMPLE OF ULTRASTRUCTURE LARGE ENOUGH FOR BEND TESTS IS A DELIVERABLE UNDER PHASE I.
