    Nonmetal-Metal Transition in Solutions of Metals in Molten Salts
    M. P. Tosi(International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Strada Costiera 11, I-34014 Trieste, Italy)
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1998, 14 (1): 1-8. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1015KB)
    Solutions of metals in molten salts present a rich phenomenology: localisatlon of electrons in disordered ionic media, activated electron transport increasing with metal concentration towards a nonmetal-metal (NM-M) transition, and liquid-liquid phase separation. A brief review of progress in the study of these systems is given in this article, with main focus on the NM-M transition. After recalling the known NM-M behaviour of the component elements in the case of expanded fluid alkali metals and mercury and of solid halogens under pressure, the article focuses on liquid metal-molten salt solutions and traces the different NM-M behaviours of the alkalis in their halides and of metals added to polyvalent metal halides.

    Effect of Metallurgical Behaviour at the Interface between Ceramic and Interlayer on the Si_3N_4/1.25Cr-0.5Mo Steel Joint Strength
    Huaping XIONG (Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering, Jilin University of Technology, Changchun 130025, China)
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1998, 14 (1): 20-24. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2180KB)
    By using newly developed CuNi5~25Ti16~28 B rapldly solidifled brazing filler the joining of Si3 N4/1.25Cr-0.5Mo steel has been carried out with interlayer method. If employing the interlayer structure of steel (0.2 mm)/W (2.0 mm)/Ni(0.2 mm), the joint strength can be increased greatly compared with employing that of Ni/W/Ni, and the three point bend strength of the Joint shows the value of 261 MPa. The metallurgical behaviour at the interface between Si3N4 and the interlayer has been studied. It is found that Fe participated in the interfacial reactions between Si3N4 and the brazing filler at the Si3N4/steel (0.2 mm) interface and the compound Fe5Si3 was produced. However, since the reactions of Fe with the active Ti are weaker than those of Ni with Ti, the normal inter facial reactions were still assured at the interface of Si3N4/steel (0.2 mm) instead of Si3N4/Ni (0.2 mm), resulting in the improvement of the joint strength. The mechanism of the formation of Fe5Si3 is also discussed. Finally, some ideas to further ameliorate and simplify the interlayer structure are put forward.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1998, 14 (1): 25-28. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (369KB)
    Carbon nitride thin films deposited using dc unbalanced magnetron sputtering system have been analyzed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT1R) and Raman spectroscopy. The XPS data show that N1s binding states depend on substrate temperature Ts, in which the peak at 400.0 eV increases with Ts, whereas the peak at 398.3 eV decreases with Ts slightly On the basis of XPS, FT1R and Raman spectra, the assignment of N1s electron binding energies was made. The peak at 400.0 eV is attributed to N atoms bonded to sp2 coordinated C atoms. The peak at 398.3 eV is attributed to N atoms bonded to sp3 coordinated C atoms as well as N C bonds.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1152KB)
    The innovative approach imparting strength and toughness to carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites (CFRP) is put fotward from the viewpoint of biomimetics. Helical fibers produced by twisting fiber bundle are arranged in the matrix to simulate the unique structure of natural fibers.The results on the CFRP with helical fiber bundles show that, under the same state of strong fiber/matrix interface, the impact fracture toughness can be improved substantially compared to conventional composites with plain fibers. The beneficial effect is attributed to the helical fiber bundles which act as single fibers of huge diameter effectively increasing the fIber eIastic energy.

    Effects of Heat Treatment on the Transformation Temperature and the Microstructure of Ni-Ti-Nb Shape Memory Alloy
    Yufeng ZHENG; Wei CAI; Yongqian WANG; Yichun LUO and Liancheng ZHAO (School of Materials Science and Engineering, Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin 150001, China)
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1998, 14 (1): 37-40. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1209KB)
    The effects of heat treatment on the phase transformation temperature and the microstructure of Ni-Ti-Nb alloy have been investigated by means of R-T method, TEM and EPMA. With the increase of annealing temperature, cooling rate and ageing temperature, the Ms temperature increases. TEM observations show no new precipitated phase was found in the B2 parent phase after heat treatment, but EPMA shows the content of Ni (or Ni/Ti ratio) in the B2 matrix changed. The main reason for the change of transformation temperature lies in the change of the matrix composition (or Ni/Ti ratio) with the variation of heat treatment procedure.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1998, 14 (1): 45-48. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (374KB)
    The kinetics of SnS evaporation from SnS-Cu2S melts was investigated by a unique experimental method. It is shown that the process is controlled by the mass transport of SnS in gas phase. The evaporation rate of SnS is significantly enhanced by increasing tempeature and carrier gas flow rate. The apparent activation energy for the process is found to be 204.67 kJ. The evaporation rate for the present system is much smaller than that for SnS-FeS system.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1055KB)
    The effects of Mg on the inclusion characteristics of 35CrNi3MoV steel have been studied. The results show that Mg treatment reduces obviously the amount of inclusion in the steel.Magnesiurn and oxygen in liquid steel form dispersed fine particles of MgO, to which other oxides or sulphides nucleated at heterogeneity and grown during solidification. In this way the inclusions are modified. The small spherical inclusions containing MgO have been observed in the Mg treated steel in contrast to the large angular inclusions with Al2O3 in the conventional steel. Especially the elongated MnS inclusion is replaced by small MgS·MgO or MgS. MnS·MgO complex inclusion. The formation of inclusions have been discussed.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1998, 14 (1): 65-71. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (780KB)
    Hydrogenated silicon carbide films (SiC:H) were deposited using the electron cyclotron resonance chemical vapour deposition (ECR-CVD) technique from a mixture of methane, silane and hydrogen, and using diborane and phosphine as doping gases. The effects of changes in the microwave power on the deposition rate and optical bandgap were investigated, and variations in the photoand dark-conductivities and activation energy were studied in conjunction with film analysis using the Raman scattering technique. In the case of boron-doped samples, the conductivity increased rapidly to a maximum, followed by rapid reduction at high microwave power. The ratio of the photo- to dark-conductivity (σph/σd) peaked at microwave power of ~600 W. Under conditions of high microwave power, Raman scattering analysis showed evidence of the formation and increase in the silicon microcrystalline and diamond-like phases in the films, the former of which could account for the rapid increase and the latter the subsequent decrease in the conductivity.In the case of phosphorusdoped SiC:H samples, it was found that increase in the microwave power has the effect of enhancing the formation of the silicon microcrystalline phase in the films which occurred in correspondence to a rapid increase in the conductivity and reduction in the activation energy The conductivity increase stabilised in samples deposited at microwave power exceeding 500 W probably as a result of dopant saturation. Results from Raman scattering measurements also showed that phosphorus doping had the effect of enhancing the formation of the silicon microcrystals in the film whereas the presence of boron had the effect of preserving the amorphous structure.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1189KB)
    An electrochemical sudece-treatment method has been used for modifying surface condition of large diameter CVD SiC (W core) fibers. The average tensile strength of the fibers was increased obviously from 2270.1 to 3002.9 MPa. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) studies on the treated fiber sudece indicate that a silicon-oxide film (primarily α-SiO2) has formed,accompanying the precipitation of amorphous carbon as the products of an anode oxidation reaction. In addition, the substantial increase of fiber strength through the electrochemical treatment may be described to the formation of oxide films and elimination of defects on the fiber surface.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1998, 14 (1): 89-91. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1158KB)
    The directional solidification of Cu-0.8 wt pct Cr alloy was investigated for high-strength conductors. An in-situ composite material in which the matrix is in cellular morphology and the well-distributed eutectics around the cells is formed in the directional solidification process. In such microstructure, the cellular matrix is as conductor and the coated-around eutectics as reinforcement. The formation mechanism of this microstructure is discussed from the interfacial instability. As a result, the tensile strength of the material along the solidification direction is two times more than that of the conventionally cast one, while the electrical conductivity is reduced a little by comparison with the pure Cu.
