Amorphous palladium-based alloy demonstrates unprecedented level of combined toughness and strength; could be of use in biomedical implants Glass is inherently strong, but when it cracks or otherwise fails, it proves brittle, shattering almost immediately. Steel and other metal alloys tend to be tough"”they resist shattering"”but are also relatively weak; they permanently deform and fail easily. The ideal material, says Marios Demetriou, a senior research fellow at the California...
