Latest Dislocation Stories
A new material structure predicted at Rice University offers the tantalizing possibility of a signal path smaller than the nanowires for advanced electronics now under development at Rice and elsewhere.
Materials scientists from Case Western Reserve University and the Institute of Solid State Research in JÃ¼lich, Germany have produced particularly clear changes in the atomic structure of sapphire following deformation at high temperatures.
Scientists take first step toward controlling the growth of nanomaterials without catalysts.
In a paper published in Nature, Huajian Gao and researchers from the University of Alabama and China report a new mechanism that governs the peak strength of nanostructured metals.
Study Shows Majority of Injuries Occur During Sports and Recreational Activity ROSEMONT, Ill., March 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body and consequently one of the most commonly dislocated joints. An article published in the March 2010 issue of The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) reveals that the majority of all shoulder dislocations occur during sports activities and young males are at a higher risk.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have discovered that a reduction in mechanical strain at the boundaries of crystal grains can significantly improve the performance of high-temperature superconductors (HTS).
By Das, S Singh, S B; Mohanty, O N; Bhadeshia, H K D H The basic science behind bake hardening steels is well understood in terms of the interactions between interstitial solutes and dislocations.
