Metals and alloys news, May 2021

A printing pattern often used in metal 3D printing to decrease residual stress, known as island scanning, can sometimes produce more stress.

Using a complex metal oxide that can utilize electron spins, physicists have created computing elements comparable to neurons and synapses in the brain.

earth-abundant molten salt, based on seawater-derived sodium chloride, is stable enough to be used for solar thermal energy storage

Researchers have developed a novel multilayer, multimaterial lithium-metal battery that can control and contain the growth of lithium dendrites.

Engineers are vaporizing metals within a magnetic field to direct the reassembly of the metal atoms into nanomaterials with predictable shapes.

A novel alloy of gallium and iron is more effective and cheaper than other 'magnetostrictive' materials, potentially leading to more efficient computing.

By doping electrons into an antiferromagnetic material, researchers have found they can turn its antiferromagnetism on and off in a controllable way.

By eliminating the anode and reducing the water content of the electrolyte, researchers have developed a stable, highly efficient sodium-ion battery.

Scientists have characterized how the electronic states in an exotic iron-based superconductor depend on local chemical concentrations.

Using a specially modified atomic force microscope, researchers have been able to determine the proton affinity of individual atoms on a surface.

By combining polymer gels and gold nanoparticles, researchers created a diverse array of oscillators that could move in unison with each other.

Scientists have glimpsed the signature of an exotic phase of matter called pair-density waves in an unconventional superconductor.
