Abstract : Microwave joining of Silicon, Carbide to Silicon, Carbide was accomplished with interlayer materials composed of Silicon, Carbon and Titanium. The width of joints using Si as the interlayer material varied from 3-50 micrometers, depending upon the method of application of the interlayer material. A joint made from a SiC disk plasma-sprayed with Si had an interlayer width less than 5 micrometers. There was no substantial variation in Knoop hardness across this joint interface. Joints were also made via combustion synthesis of Ti and C powders in situ.
