Flash-sintered ceramic material could protect metal blades in aircraft engines

By Faye Oney / June 12, 2018

Researchers have demonstrated that flash sintered yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) acquires metal-like plasticity at room temperature. This discovery could prove to be useful in using YSZ as a thermal barrier coating for aircraft engine blades.

Disorderly conduct: Insight into materials failure could lead to glasses that are less likely to break

By April Gocha / December 5, 2017

An interdisciplinary group of scientists at the University of Pennsylvania have harnessed intense computation, data, and modeling power to determine how disordered solids fail, an understanding that could help engineer custom materials, such as glass that is less likely to break.

Dislocations create traffic jams—not express lanes—for ionic transport in metal oxides

By April Gocha / April 3, 2015

New research from Massachusetts Institute of Technology adds another to the list of things that aren’t as they seem—the effect of dislocations on ionic transport within metal oxides.
