Weigh ahead

Abstract:
UK researchers plan to develop a lightweight nanostructured aluminium alloy that is up to 10 times stronger than existing equivalents and can operate at much higher temperatures.

The work of the Oxford University team will build on recent advances in nanotechnology, which have opened the way for a nanostructured class of cast metal matrix composites (MMCs).
