What is it about?

The work is about a novel layer which is formed during material joining during brazing. The layer helps to strengthen the joint and improve mechanical properties. The layer is formed with the help of a carbon sponge, which goes through changes during the material joining process.

Why is it important?

The work is important because it highlights how the use of specialized materials can help performance in advanced material systems.


The work examines from a physio-chemical point of view why the selection of materials is important when joining different material types. It also emphasizes why traditional joining can be improved when specially designed interlayers are employed.
