Synthesis of silicon carbide fibers. 1993.
TURI Technical Report No. 17. The objective of this project is to synthesize single crystal silicon carbide fibers without the use of any toxic chemicals. This would be accomplished by following a two step procedure. The first step is to grow single crystal silicon fibers using the Czochralski technique. The second step is to diffuse carbon, from methane, into the fibers to form silicon carbide through a gas-solid reaction in a quartz-tube reactor. Several silicon fibers were grown and identified, through electron diffraction, as single crystals. The quartz-tube reactor was designed and built. Final testing of the silicon fibers was delayed because of several problems, however, at present all systems are ready for operation.File Name: techreport17.pdf
