Summary

During the past decade, the development of high temperature solid state devices for energy generation and environmental control applications has advanced considerably. Traditionally, glass seals have been employed as a means of hermetically joining the ceramic components that lie at the heart of these devices to the heat resistant metal frame that gives the device its structural integrity. The present paper outlines an alternative technique for joining these dissimilar materials by brazing and discusses recent findings regarding the effect of high temperature aging in dry air or wet hydrogen on the strength of the joint.
