Summary

Novel oxynitride glass-ceramic matrix composites prepared by hot pressing BaSiAlON oxynitride glasses and SiC (Nlcalon) fibers were characterized by XRD, SEM, electron microprobe analyses, and scanning auger microanalysis. The inter-facial region between the fibers and matrix was found to be enriched in carbon. The microchemical results indicated the diffusion of barium and aluminum into the fibers.
