Abstract:

A rather broad investigation was carried on in the materials and methods which are considered possibly useful in forming ceramic to metal seals and composite structures for use in the environment of cesium-plasma thermionic converters. Initially, studies of five specific means of joining refractory metals to alumina were undertaken, as well as studies of metallizing methods, of forming graded tungsten-alumina composites, and of the possible metals and ceramics which could be utilized best in structures operated at 2000 C.
