Quicker, more precise way to find metallic glasses

Metallic glasses are being developed for a broad range of applications. The relatively new material is stronger than even the best metals, but with the pliability of plastic.

Magnetic material 3D-printed from nonmagnetic powder

Scientists from Skoltech and their colleagues have used a 3D printer to fuse two materials in an alloy whose composition continuously changes from one region of the sample to the other, endowing the alloy with gradient magnetic ...

Tweaking alloy microchemistry for flawless metal 3D printing

In the last few decades, metal 3D printing has spearheaded the efforts in creating custom parts of intricate shapes and high functionality. But as additive manufacturers have included more alloys for their 3D printing needs, ...

Elements in liquid metals compete to win the surface

Some alloys are in the liquid state at or near room temperature. These alloys are usually composed of gallium and indium (elements used in low energy lamps), tin and bismuth (materials used in constructions). The ratio and ...

Dual-phase alloy extremely resistant to fractures

A team of researchers affiliated with multiple institutions in China, the U.S. and Germany has created a dual-phase alloy that has proven to be extremely resistant to fracturing. In their paper published in the journal Science, ...

New 2D alloy combines five metals, breaks down carbon dioxide

A two-dimensional alloy material—made from five metals as opposed to the traditional two—has been developed by a collaboration between researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. ...
