Dynamic creation and evolution of gradient-nano-grained structures in single-crystal metallic microcubes

In an article published today in Science, we have demonstrated the creation of an extreme gradient-nano-grained (GNG) structure in single-crystal microcubes through high-velocity impact. We use the defect-free single-crystal silver microcubes, synthesized using a seed-growth process, as the model system, and fire them at supersonic velocities onto a rigid target to create the GNG structure.

Structures: New Research Journal welcoming submissions

The Institution of Structural Engineers, the world's leading professional body for qualifications and standards in structural engineering, and Elsevier are pleased to announce that Structures, a new peer-reviewed journal covering the full breadth of structural engineering research, is now open for submissions.
