Abstract:

The research undertaken under the present AFOSR contract is intended to address the question of what elements might be expected to form silicides in the core of the Earth and is aimed at determining and demonstrating the technological feasibility of new concepts originating from the research. Specifically, the research objectives are the following 1 Prepare a complete bibliography on silicide technology, including the physical and chemical properties 2 Determine the effects of phosphorous and copper on nickel silicide. Conduct experiments to determine what elements form silicides 3 Conduct experiments on Earth core type materials to provide new materials and processes. The schedule is given for the tasks that are the research objectives and the deliverables.
