Summary

The production and availability of new and modified reinforcements for advanced composites has been identified as a key enabling technology needed to meet the materials needs of advanced aerospace and defense systems. The chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of particulates, fibers, whiskers, platelets, and coatings has the potential for meeting these demands. The effect of CVD processing conditions on reinforcement microstructure and the applicability of CVD to producing various forms of reinforcements are discussed, as well as materials and forms which have been investigated to date.
