Metastable, Mechanically Alloyed and Nanocrystalline Materials
Among the various contributions are major papers covering the topics of bulk metallic glasses, GMR in mechanically alloyed materials, nanostructures via melt-spun precursors, mechanical grinding, mechanosynthesis and mechanochemistry. Progress in the area of sintering and compaction techniques is reported. The magnetic, mechanical and electrochemical properties of several nanocrystalline materials are discussed. Significant progress is also reported in the modeling and understanding of basic mechanisms of fabrication processes. Defects and grain boundaries in nanocrystalline materials remain important topics, and are the subject of in-depth consideration.
