NIST Grants Support Emerging Metal Technologies

Abstract:
Receiving a $10.1-million, five-year grant from NIST is an interdisciplinary team of researchers led by University of Wisconsin-Madison mechanical engineering professor Xiaochun Li. They intend to implement nanotechnology into standard metalcasting technologies, to produce aluminum and magnesium nanocomposites.

Industrial applications are increasing for lightweight alloys, and nanoparticles are viewed as a way to reinforce the materials. The research will seek ways to effectively disperse the particles to create a metal matrix.
