Casting of Laminated Ribbon Using a Modified Melt-Spinning Technique


Laminated metal-metal and metal-semiconductor ribbons have been prepared by a modified melt-spinning technique. Characterization studies have been carried out on laminated Sn-Zn, Ge-Al, InSb-CuZr and some other materials. Characteristics of these ribbons and their potential applications will be described.
