AbstractThree tasks were proposed for this work. All three were completed. The tasks were as follows: Task 1: A larger plating system will be purchased for process scale-up. TiF3 will be tested as the metal precursor in an effort to reduce water sensitivity of the process. Task 2: Ti on steel samples will be created at PNNL and shipped to Atlas Technologies. Atlas Technologies will diffusion bond the samples to aluminum and test the bond strength. The results will be reported to PNNL. Task 3: Investigation into DOE mission relevant Ti and Zr alloys and demonstration on larger scale work pieces.
