Summary

Molybdenum and Nb pins were investigated as potential electrical feedthroughs in Al2O3-ceramic components. Ceramic powder was isostatically pressed around the metal pins prior to sintering. Reactions observed between Mo and Nb and the ceramic matrix will be discussed, along With design criteria for fabrication.
