Paper Title:
Coating SiC Whiskers with Protective Si Films for Al Matrix Composite
  Abstract

In SiC whisker reinforced Al matrix composite, the interface reaction significantly influences the property of the composite. Si films have been deposited on SiC whiskers by quasi atomic layer deposition from gaseous SiH4 to protect the whiskers from being eroded by Al matrix. The structure and morphology of the coating were characterized by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscope. The coating deposited on SiC whiskers is cubic phase polycrystalline silicon and this ultrathin Si film is even and continuous, completely covering every individual SiC whisker. The effect of the Si coating on improving the whisker/matrix interaction was also studied in this work. The interface layer, Si coating, could effectively protect the SiC whisker from erosion caused by Al matrix during the high temperature manufacturing process and improve the adhesion between the SiC whisker and the Al matrix.
