Summary

A gas-jet laser chemical vapor deposition (LCVD) system has been designed and developed for the manufacture of small, complex ceramic, metallic, and composite parts. In the past two years, direct writing and fiber growth mechanisms have been demonstrated for several materials. Thermally controlled experiments have permitted the optimization of process parameters and the growth of three-dimensional muti-laycr structures. Extensive modeling in the areas of chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid flow, and mass tranport have lead to a better understanding of the LCVD process.
