Abstract:

The automatic in-place repair of conductors, resistors, and inductors by the application of special purpose whisker growing and post coating alloys was investigated. Alloy compositions, and processing and application techniques were optimized for maximizing repair rates. Problems of practical application to operational systems were identified and evaluated. It was concluded that while the techniques investigated have only limited potential feasibility for general practical application, feasibility may exist for specialized applications. The repair of faulty semiconductor devices diodes by in-place remelting and rate growing using passive thermal gradients was investigated and found to be unfeasible for practical application. A literature search on capacitors revealed extensive prior work on the development of capacitors with the inherent capability for self-repair of certain types of failures. Author
