An extensive study by an interdisciplinary research group suggests that the deformation properties of nanocrystals are not much different from those of the Earth’s crust.More
Erlebacher Group Simulation Featured On JOM Cover
An illustration developed by Professor Jonah Erlebacher and his research group is featured on the cover of the July 2014 issue of JOM, an official publication of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society.
The cover image is a representation of of large-scale kinetic Monte Carlo simulations of the nanoscale porosity that can form through dealloying (when one component of a metal alloy is actively removed during processing). The dealloying process is critical to materials behavior in catalysis, batteries, corrosion, and advanced synthesis of nanostructured materials.
