Brazing Technology for Aluminum Containing Stainless Steel Providing High Electrical Conductivity Joints

­ Executive Summary Oxidation resistive ferritic stainless steels are used in applications such as solid oxide fuel cells where corrosion resistance is needed under extreme environmental conditions. These materials are commonly bonded to other metals or ceramics by methods including brazing where the braze joints need to withstand high temperature...

Controlled Wetting and Spreading of Silver on Ceramics Using Porous Nickel Interlayers

Executive SummaryCeramic substrates such as alumina, aluminum nitride, or beryllium oxide are highly thermally conductive and can dissipate heat quickly across a surface, preventing heat build-up and improving the life of the semiconductors junctions on a printed circuit board (PCB). Therefore, ceramic substrates are ideal for high amperage and high...

Advanced Ceramic-to-Metal Brazing

Executive Summary Joining dissimilar materials has been an area of study for many decades, with many challenges still being addressed. Our invention allows for a superior brazed joint between ceramic and metal components, with an end product that has less defects – and therefore a stronger bond – than typical brazing methods allow. Description...
