Paper Co-authored by Dr. Todd Hufnagel Listed as PRL Editors’ Suggestion

April 16, 2014

A paper co-authored by Dr. Todd Hufnagel, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, has been listed as an Editors’ Suggestion by the editors of Physical Review Letters.

The paper, titled “Bulk Metallic Glasses Deform via Slip Avalanches,” represents a first for metallic glasses: for the first time in metallic glasses, both the exponents and scaling functions that describe the nature, statistics, and dynamics of slip events during slow deformation are extracted according to a simple mean field model.

Dr. Hufnagel collaborated with researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and Bucknell University. Visit Physical Review Letters to read the paper.
