Fabrication of Multi-Layered Carbon Structures Using LCVD 61
MetadataShow full item record
Others have used Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition (LCVD) to create 3-D fibrous structures and helical springs. Current research efforts focus on the creation of more advanced three-dimensional carbon objects through the use of multi-layered deposition. Multi-layered structures require an understanding of interlayer adhesion and the propagation of geometric anomalies through multiple layers. An important aspect in minimizing these shape anomalies is the implementation of closed loop temperature control. Several laminated carbon structures are presented with discussions and observations about the fabrication process and visual characteristics of each. The major issues in using LCVD to create multi-layer carbon structures are addressed.
