Metals and alloys news, July 2018

Lithium-calcium-silicate bioceramic hat could be a promising biomaterial for reconstructing defects and damage at the cartilage-osteochondral interface.

Marking where to cut ‘gummy’ metals

Applying a permanent marker, glue or tape to gummy metals such as aluminum makes them much easier to cut for industrial applications.

By doping alumina crystals with neodymium ions, engineers have developed a new laser material that can emit ultra-short, high-power pulses.

A novel polymer material can change its structure in response to light, converting from a rigid substance to a softer one that can heal itself.

By examining general grain boundaries, engineers have shed new light on the mechanisms behind sulfur embrittlement of nickel.

By stabilizing aggressive electrodes with a highly-fluorinated electrolyte, researchers have been able to increase the capacity of lithium-ion batteries.

Nearly a third of the reaction products generated during fission of U235 in light-water reactors are unwanted gases.

Researchers have developed a way to fabricate soft, porous materials via the self-assembly of metal-organic polyhedra made of rhodium atoms.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

Star-shaped gold nanoparticles coated with titanium dioxide can harness visible and infrared light to generate hydrogen from water.

Connecting a graphene layer with two other atomic layers can extend the lifetime of excited electrons in graphene by several hundred times.

Researchers have found that a novel hybrid improper ferroelectric possesses ferroelectric, magnetoelectric and optical properties.

Using nanowires of a molybdenum-germanium alloy, scientists have been able to explore the transition from a superconducting to a normal metal state.

A new microscopy technique can track microstructural changes in materials in real time as they are exposed to extreme heat and stress.

By using an ion beam to twist and bend a nanometer-thick layer of metal, scientists have created nanodevices for manipulating light.

Altering the composition of a layered halide material allows researchers to vary its magnetization continuously between in-plane and out-of-plane.

Researchers have used a novel cold sintering process to produce, for the first time, a composite made from a ceramic and the 2D material MXene.

Using a high-speed electron camera, researchers have recorded the most detailed atomic movie of gold melting after being blasted by laser light.

Elsevier's extended Materials Today family also delivered very strong results.
