(2018-04-17)Multi-dimensional (2D and 3D) architectures with characteristic feature sizes on the order of a micrometer and below can exhibit extraordinary properties that are not present in their non-structured counterparts. Of ...
Disorder and nanopatterning in ordered binary alloys: in situ ion irradiation and kinetic Monte Carlo simulation (2016-11-11)We study the effects of temperature and disordering rate on the ordered microstructures of real and simulated binary alloys. The behavior of Cu3Au, an alloy with L12 chemical order, is investigated experimentally through ...
(2019-03-28)The classical view of plasticity in metals assumed that any fluctuations in the underlying dislocation motion were essentially Gaussian and could therefore be accurately represented by large-scale averages in a homogenous ...
(2018-01-22)There exist many practical examples of extreme environments where materials are commonly forced to operate, ranging from nuclear reactors to alloys being processed through severe plastic deformation. In each of these cases, ...
Solidification of eutectics utilizing directional solidification and confining templates for optical metamaterial applications (2019-04-16)Fabrication of optical metamaterials, or structured materials with unique optical responses not found in the original material, requires complex and time-consuming methods such as e-beam photolithography, microscale 3D ...
