Description

The new advanced material is 10 times stronger than conventional crystalline magnesium alloy and has super-deformation capacity two times higher than that of magnesium-based metallic glass. The magnesium-alloy system consists of nanocrystalline cores embeddedin amorphous glassy shells. The strength of the resulting dual-phase material is a near-ideal 3.3 gigapascals (Gpa) – making this the strongest magnesium – alloy thin film yet developed.
