While ‘Strange Metal’ may sound like the name of an experimental avant-garde subgenre of heavy metal music, it in fact refers to a class of materials that shares fundamental quantum attributes with black holes.
A team of researchers recently published a paper in the journal Materials that showed the viability of using the gas nitriding process and duplex aging to modify the surface of titanium alloys in order to make them wear resistant.
In an article published in the open-access journal Materials, researchers studied welded joints of Al- MG-LI alloy with zirconium additives.
New research in the journal Materials has investigated the impact of determining remelting processing parameters through mathematical simulations and experiments analyses in order to maximize a process industries chain for DMD part repair.
A new breakthrough was considered in the Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine, where tribological characteristics of biodegradable natural Zn and Zn-X (Cu, Li, Ge) alloys were investigated.
Designing advanced materials that can withstand the extreme environments within fusion reactors is key to the development of this technological field.
All-solid-state batteries have recently attracted attention as an energy storage solution for electric vehicles.
In an article recently published in the open-access journal Light: Science & Applications, researchers constructed a specific GeSn-on-insulator (GeSnOI) stack with the help of stressor layers as dielectric optical claddings. They also demonstrated that GeSnOI is suitable for monolithic integration of planar Group-IV semiconductor lasers on photonic platforms in the near- and mid-infrared wavelength range.
The latest research in the Journal of Materials Research and Technology is focused on the evaluation of microstructural properties and toughness of industrial electric resistance welding (ERW) equipment.
Researchers have devised a data-centric approach to generative modelling for 3D-printed steel. The team believe that their model could help determine the quality of a design and the material before fabrication.
