Interfacial Coatings on Inorganic Fibers for High Temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites
Ceramic matrix composites reinforced by carbon or SiC-based fibers achieve high toughness and damage tolerance through the disposal of weak fiber coating which can deflect cracks and promote debonding at the fiber/matrix region. The methods for fabrication, as well as different techniques including SEM/EDS, XPS, XRD, AFM, micro Raman for evaluation of properties of the interphase zone are considered. The morphology, composition, topography, roughness, tensile properties of coated carbon and SiC fibers are discussed in details. The behavior of coated fibers is governed by the chemistry, procedure for coating fabrication, nanostructural factors.
