General description

Mo foils are lightweight and flexible, hence desirable for space applications. Mo foil may be used as a substrate for the fabrication of CdS-CdTe solar cells. Interaction of selenium, arsenic hydrides, stibine and bismuthine with Mo foil was investigated by atomic absorption spectroscopy. Mo foils may be used to generate metal diffusion bonding in silicon carbide/silicon carbide (SiC/SiC) joints.
