The new alloys are lighter and less expensive, but are still tough and ductile enough for use in aerospace applications Scientists from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have created a range of structural metallic-glass composites, based in titanium, that are lighter and less expensive than any the group had previously created, while still maintaining their toughness and ductility--the ability to be deformed without breaking. A paper describing these breakthrough metallic-glass...
