Control Growth of Pyrocarbon by Chemical Vapor Infiltration
A novel rapid chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) processing defined by multi-physics fields CVI was used to fabricate carbon/carbon (C/C) composites. Liquid petrol gas is used as carbon source and the parameters were experimental tested and optimized. Because of the influence of multi-physics fields, a new surface morpha is grown under control parameters. It is called “Dot Structure”. The structure of pyrocarbon is analyzed and characterized by XRD, SEM with EDS, and Raman spectrum. At the end, a simple model of point discharge for growth of pyrocarbon is proposed. The deposited pyrocarbon based on multi-physics fields chemical vapor infiltration is expected to provide an improve performance in rapid C/C composites fabrication.
