Status of Commercialization of Nanostructured Metals
Nanostructured metals hold the potential to significantly augment the product portfolios of the metals industry. This potential is being progressively developed through contributions from the academic community to the underlying science of nanostructuring, increasing development and protection of intellectual property, and the involvement of large corporations. In this paper we review the trends and status of the commercialization of nanostructured metals technology, focusing on metals produced by severe plastic deformation.
