The work was part of a continuing effort to determine the effects which various additives have on the wetting and bonding of nickel and nickel alloys to single crystal sapphire. The effects of dilute alloys 0.002 to 0.088 atomic percent ao Cr, Ti, and Zr were studied by sessile drop experiments, and the specimens characterized by electron microscopy and by electron probe microanalysis. A number of parameters which influence the wetting and the bonding were identified. In addition, some studies were made of the wetting of sapphire by 1 ao alloys of CeNi, YNi, VNi.
