Wetting Ability of Ag Based Molten Alloys on Graphite Substrate
The wetting angle (Θ) of molten Ag (Zn, Cu, Ga) drops on graphite substrate is investigated. A texture formation was found in the substrate/drop interphase region after solidification. The enrichment (segregation) of Ag atoms in the interface layer was observed in the Ag-Cu alloy, and unexpected mixing between graphite substrate and the Ag-Ga melt was also detected in the solidified structure.
