Paper Title:
Fabrication of Porous Intermetallic Thick Films by Metallic Powder-Liquid Reaction
  Abstract

We introduce the concept of functional microchannel lining. As an example, we describe the composition and structure of a Ni-Al intermetallic layer lining the inner wall of the microchannel produced by a powder-metallurgical process utilizing microscopic reactive infiltration and/or diffusion. The Ni-Al lining layer is a thick film consists of multiple sub-layers and has a peculiar porous structure, in which long and thin micropores had grown along the thickness direction of the film. In our experiment, a nickel-powder compact containing shaped aluminum wire was sintered at temperatures between the melting points of nickel and aluminum. Molten aluminum migrated into the surrounding nickel powder and reacted with nickel, and thus a microchannel and a Ni-Al intermetallic lining layer were produced. In this process, nickel powder composed the device body, and the aluminum wire gave the shape of the microchannel and act as the aluminum source for the lining layer. Metallographical examinations revealed that both aluminum concentration and voidage in the Ni-Al lining layer show a graded distribution along the thickness direction of the layer. Such a porous structure is appropriate for a catalyst support used for high-temperature reactions.
