High-strength quaternary alloys
High-strength quaternary alloys with ultrafine microstructures result from a combination of spinodal decomposition and atomic ordering transformations. Research aims to relate the progression of these transformations to bulk properties such as strength, hardness, and ferromagnetism. Such high-strength low-density alloys would have many industrial and aerospace applications. Some of this work is performed in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and also the University of Sydney.
