Abstract : This report summarizes the first year of a two-year effort on sol/gel processing techniques for glass matrix composites. The emphasis in this program is on sol/gel fabrication techniques and their influence upon the composite properties. The program did not try to develop new matrices or reinforcements. Special emphasis was placed on the reduction in processing temperature and more uniform distribution of the glass matrix between the fibers. Keywords: Ceramic matrix composites, Mirror substrate materials, Thermal properties, Mechanical properties, Glass matrix composite.
