<正> The effects of yttrium and cerium on microstructures and properties of Nb-Si system composites were investigated by scanning electron microscopy(SEM), energy dispersive spectrum (EDS), X-ray diffraction(XRD) and high temperature oxidation experiments. It is found that the coarse primary silicide phase became finer and more homogeneous with Y and Ce addition. The results of high temperature oxidation experiments show that the oxidation rates of Nb Si system composites with an appropriate amount of Y and Ce decrease compared with those of alloys without Y or Ce addition, and oxidation products mainly distribute along the phase boundaries between the Nb solid solution and silicide.
