Abstract

The adhesion of high purity gold to single crystal alumina has been investigated by use of the sessile drop method. An improved method for testing sessile drop adhesion couples is presented. The testing apparatus is capable of applying tensile loads in excess of 130 pounds. Minor amounts of oxygen in the ambient atmosphere during adhesion couple preparation are shown to have a strong influence on the bonding of this sytem.
