Metamaterial Shrinky-Dinks: Glassy carbon microlattice structures go smaller, stronger than ever before

By April Gocha / February 9, 2016

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology scientists have turned to 3-D laser lithography to build the world’s smallest microlattice structures. But while this method is great at fabricating intricate, precise, and tiny structures, it has just one small problem—it cannot go small enough.

Oxide ceramics handle heat, struggle with corrosion in reverse-flow pyrolysis petrochemical reactors

By Eileen De Guire / January 4, 2013

Cross-sectional SEM images of the corroded polycrystalline 8 mol%-YSZ coupon after testing in the reverse‐flow pyrolysis reactor for about 70 hours showing the corrosion of polycrystalline bulk material to fine-grained dust. Credit: JACerS; Wiley. Metal dusting is a dramatic and catastrophic high-temperature corrosion mechanism. As the term implies, the corrosion process converts a structural alloy…
