Abstract : Refractory metal disilicides have been a topic of considerable interest to both the metals and ceramics communities in recent years. This report is intended to serve as a status report on fundamental properties and a review of recent research. A major goal of this report has been to incorporate aspects of research for electronic as well as structural applications. Data- reviewed includes physical and mechanical properties as well as phase equilibria, processing and oxidation resistance. Suggested future directions for research are also discussed.
