The development of reliable, inexpensive and user-friendly joining methods is a critical issue of the development of next generation of nuclear reactors and aerospace vehicles. The main aim of the work will be to develop new bonding methods of SiC-based materials to their counterparts, or the materials with different chemical compositions (e.g. metals). The investigation of bonding mechanism, physical and chemical processes, as well as mechanical and functional properties of the joints will be an important task.
