dc.description.abstractThis paper describes an investigation ofthe production ofsilicon carbide shapes by Selective Laser Reaction Sintering (SLRS). One type ofSLRS process, which combines laser sintering of silicon with acetylene decomposition, is briefly outlined, and the mechanisms important to the process are discussed. A series oftest shapes are made at different acetylene pressures to determine pressure effects on conversion to silicon carbide. X-ray diffraction spectroscopy is used for bulk analysis ofthe shapes, and Auger electron spectroscopy is used for surface analysis. The results indicate that acetylene pressure does have a strong effect on silicon conversion to silicon carbide, and SLRS can be used successfully to make silicon carbide shapes.en_US
