Summary

Interfacial chemistry of mullite fiber reinforced-mullite matrix composites was examined using SEM/EDX and scanning AES. All the fibers bond strongly to the matrix and exhibit no sliding during a fiber push-in test. Excess Si over Al is found at the fiber-matrix interfaces. AES results show the carbon layer is nonuniform and in some cases less than 30 nm thick.
