Abstract:

Three aspects of materials relevant to space power systems were investigated in this three month project. The three issues addressed the mechanisms governing electrical degradation of ceramic insulators due to irradiation, the processing characteristics of refractory alloy single crystals and the feasibility of fabricating ductile beta alumina. The primary effort was concentrated in the first two areas. jg
