Paper Abstract

A mosaic design for a CVD diamond window is described as an alternate solution to a monolithic diamond window. Experimental results are shown for two different brazing techniques to bond four, one inch square diamond tiles to ceramic frames. The two brazing techniques used are (1) conventional brazing where the entire assembly is heated in an inert atmosphere to a temperature dictated by the braze material melting temperature and (2) high power, high frequency pulsed microwave brazing. The benefits of microwave brazing, such as selective heating of the different components, optimization of the mechanical properties, the size of the brazed joints and efficiency, are briefly discussed.
