Research Highlights

Fractured surface of a novel nanocrystalline magnesium, Mg, matrix composite, reinforced with Ti2AlC, a MAX phase, that deforms primarily by kink band formation.  In this colorized SEM image, a Ti2AlC grain kinked several times during fracture to form a dragon. Fire from the dragon represents the extraordinary thermal stability of the nanocrystalline Mg matrix, wherein heating to 50°C above the melting point of Mg did not lead to the coarsening of the Mg nanograins.  The micrograph was taken by Babak Anasori from Dr. Michel Barsoum's MAX Group.
