New Model Should Expedite Development of Temperature-Stable Nano-Alloys


Wednesday, September 18, 2013 —

“And our experimental results confirm the accuracy of the model.”


“We are already using the model in our investigations into lightweight aluminum alloys and high-temperature alloys for nuclear energy applications,” says Dr. Mostafa Saber, lead author of the study and a postdoctoral research scholar in materials science and engineering at NC State.


The paper, “A Predictive Model for Thermodynamic Stability of Grain Size in Nanocrystalline Ternary Alloys,” was published online Sept. 12 in the Journal of Applied Physics. The paper was co-authored by Dr. Hasan Kotan, a former Ph.D. student and postdoctoral researcher at NC State, and Dr. Carl Koch, Kobe Steel Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at NC State. The research was supported by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy.
