Advances In Glass Alloys Lead To Strength, Flexibility
2014-03-04 12:36:16

DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory What do some high-end golf clubs and your living room window have in common? The answer is glass, but in the golf clubs' case it's a specialized glass product, called metallic glass, with the ability to be bent considerably and spring back into its original form. Your windows, as you know, aren't quite as forgiving of a sudden impact, and they shatter – they are brittle, as opposed to ductile, or more flexible products. For the golf clubs, however, a...

From the production of tougher, more durable smart phones and other electronic devices, to a wider variety of longer lasting biomedical implants, bulk metallic glasses are poised to be  mainstay materials for the 21st Century. Featuring a non-crystalline amorphous structure, bulk metallic glasses can be as strong or even stronger than steel, as malleable as plastics,  conduct electricity and resist corrosion. These materials would seem to have it all save for one problem: they are often...

Synchrotron Helps Reveal Structure Of A Supercooled Liquid
2013-07-05 10:54:23

Saarland University The experimental work, which was performed at the German Electron Synchrotron Facility (DESY) in Hamburg, involved levitating hot metal droplets and observing them as they cooled by irradiating them with x-rays from one of the world's strongest x-ray sources. The research work is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the results have just been published in Nature Communications. Supercooled liquids demonstrate some interesting phenomena when they are...

Many solids are produced from melting. Depending on how quickly they cool off, invariably, internal tensile stresses begin to build up. One example are Prince Rupert's Drops, or Dutch tears: you can hit their thick end with a hammer without breaking them while a slight pressure applied to their thin end is enough to shatter the entire tear. The properties of safety or even gorilla glass are determined to a large extent by their internal tensile stresses. However, until now, our understanding...

Firing Temperature Determines Whether Glass Will Bend Or Break
2013-02-28 16:24:11

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers have found a way to determine whether glass will be brittle, or will have the ability to bend without breaking. The team wrote in the journal Nature Communications about how they've identified a temperature that allows you to determine whether you will be forming a brittle piece of glass, or ductile, which refers to a piece of glass' toughness. There is a temperature at which glass can become too viscous for...


Word of the Day
