Prof. Izabela Szlufarska’s group identified new ways for making nominally brittle materials tough through the formation of amorphous shear bands. The criteria for the design of tougher materials have been published in the journal Nature Materials.
It was a true team effort. Congratulations to the current and previous CMG members who contributed to this research: Xuanxin Hu, Nuohao Liu, Dr. Hongliang Zhang, Vrishank Jambur, Dr. Siamak Attarian, Dr. Xi Jianqi, and Dr. Hubin Luo, as well as to collaborators Dr. Ranran Su and Prof. John Perepezko.
