Summary

Several aluminum-based materials have been evaluated for possible application at cryogenic temperatures. These included the Al-Li alloy 2090, a high purity mechanically alloyed Al, SiC whisker-reinforced Al 2124, and SiC paniculate-reinforced Al 6061. Mechanical properties, thermal properties, and electrical properties were measured for these materials. Their performance in two different designs of radio-frequency resonant cavity was also determined.
