Abstract : Silicon carbide and titanium carbide filaments were deposited by vapor deposition techniques. An abbreviated study of the effect of varying deposition parameters upon tensile strength was made using boron filaments produced from diborane. The tensile strength was found to vary widely by adjusting the deposition parameters of temperature and gas ratios. The tensile strength of all materials deposited to date was measured. (Author)
