This invention relates to improved carbon fiber reinforced metal matrix composites. More particularly, the invention relates to reinforced metal matrix composites having two barrier layers on the carbon reinforcing fiber. Stiff, strong, and thin metal and metal-like materials are needed for many engineering applications such as skins for aircraft, rockets and ground vehicles. Composites, consisting of a matrix of metal, alloy or intermetallic material strengthened by the inclusion of reinforcing fibers of a ceramic, metal, carbon or other material, have been found useful for these applications. Composites are often stronger and lighter than the matrix material forming the composite. Patent applications. jes
