Structure of Porous Copper Fabricated by Unidirectional Solidification under Pressurized Hydrogen
Porous copper with elongated cylindrical pores were fabricated by a unidirectional solidification method in a mixture of hydrogen and argon with high pressures. The porous copper with longitudinal pores and radial pores were compared on structure. The effect of both hydrogen pressure and argon pressure on structure of the porous copper including pore size, pore density, and porosity was investigated. The reason for the effect is explained.
