Nanoscale intergranular films shed light on grain boundary behavior

By Eileen De Guire / May 26, 2011

During one of their studies, grain boundary researchers began with gold films broken into particles (via annealing) dispersed across a sapphire substrate. Credit: Baram, et al; Technion. Materials scientists have long recognized that grain boundaries and interfaces can limit a material’s bulk properties, especially at high temperatures. Significant research effort has gone into understanding their nature with an eye to…

2008 Sosman Lecture: Interfacial Kinetic Engineering: How Far Have We Come Since Kingery’s Inaugural Sosman Address? – Martin P. Harmer

By / March 14, 2009

In his opening Sosman Memorial lecture in 1973, Kingery proposed a set of plausible concepts which he considered to be necessary and sufficient for the interpretation of ceramic grain-boundary phenomena, which provided an early foundation for conducting interfacial kinetic engineering.
