Al-27Si and Al-50Si were brazed by using a thin Cu interlayer. The metallurgical bonding without obvious defects is achieved, and a wide brazing seam consisting of fine eutectic structures and coarse Si particles is formed in the Al-27Si/Cu/Al-50Si joint. The deposition of Si element in the liquid phases during solidification results in the formation of the larger Si particles and ultra-small Si particles in the brazing seam. The shear strength of the joint reaches 63 MPa.
