In this comprehensive and up-to-date book, the authors present the results of investigations of the mechanical strength of bonding diamonds to metals and alloys and describe the application of the results in fabrication of diamond tools and in soldering of diamonds. General problems of bonding, wetting and contact interaction between diamonds and metal metals are discussed. Special attention is given to the effect of diffusion processes at the interface, the conditions of formation and structure of the interface, diamond graphitization and other factors affecting the strength of diamond-metal bonds. Solders and technology of soldering diamonds in single-crystal and other diamond tools are described. The book will be of considerable interest to scientists, engineers and technicians working in the field of physical chemistry, materials science and tool fabrication. Students of metallurgical faculties will also find it useful.
