Disordered materials could be hardest, most heat-tolerant carbides

Simulations predict new class of carbides

28-Nov-2018

Materials scientists at Duke University and UC San Diego have discovered a new class of carbides expected to be among the hardest materials with the highest melting points in existence. Made from inexpensive metals, the new materials may soon find use in a wide range of industries from machinery ...

Unmasking corrosion to design better protective thin films for metals

Analyzing oxide films at atomic level

08-Oct-2018

Corrosion is an age-old problem that is estimated to cost about $1 trillion a year, or about 5 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product. Corrosion of metals can be particularly bad, but fortunately they are normally protected from catastrophic damage by naturally forming, super-thin oxide ...
