Abstract:Self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) in Al/Ni, Al/Fe, and Al/Co bilayer thin films is investigated. It is established that SHS is achieved in thin films at initiation temperatures 300–350° lower than in powders. The mechanism of SHS in thin films is similar to the process of explosive crystallization. It is shown that at the initial stage solid-phase reactions arising on the contact surface of condensate films can be self-propagating high-temperature synthesis. SHS could find application in different technologies for obtaining film components for microelectronics.
