      /AB  ABSTRACT: 
          Precursors for zircon-carbon mixtures were made to coat fibers for 
        ceramic-matrix composites. Precursors were characterized using XRD, TGA, 
        and DTA. Zircon formed from vanadium- or lithium-doped precursors after 
        heat treatments at > or = 9000C in air, but it did not form at 12000-14000C 
        in argon when large amounts of carbon were added. Some precursors were used 
        to coat Nextel 720 and Hi-Nicalon fibers. The coatings were characterized 
        using SEM and TEM, and coated-fiber tensile strengths were measured. 
        Although zircon formed in powders, only tetragonal-zirconia-silica mixed 
        phases formed in fiber coatings at 12000C in air. Loss of vanadium oxide 
        flux to the fibers may have caused the lack of conversion to zircon. The 
        strengths of the coated fibers were severely degraded after heat treatment 
        at > or = 10000C in air, but not in argon. The coated fibers were compared 
        with zirconia-carbon-coated fibers made using similar methods. Mechanisms 
        for fiber strength degradation are discussed.
