Alloys: tailor-made materials

Abstract:
Even scientists struggle to produce full proof alloys. An alloy called Nitinol, a mixture of nickel and titanium, can maintain its shape only at a specific temperature. The advent of nanotechnology has given a tool to scientists to replace any atom in the crystal and give it the desired shape. In future, it is hoped that scientists will be able to prepare tailor-made materials. So it should not be a surprise if we come across a piece of copper that is as transparent as glass.
