  • Effect of Mo on the mechanical behavior of γ/γ'-strengthened Co-Ti-based alloys, Acta Materialia. 2020


Welcome to our Alloy3Dlab group page. We work on a range of materials for engineering applications such as aerospace, automobiles, etc. We manipulate structures at the atomic-scale by elemental additions to design new materials with improved properties. The main areas are Superalloys (Co- and Ni-based), Light Metal Alloys (Al- and Mg-based), and other engineering alloys such as Cu-based, High entropy alloys, etc. Additionally, with advanced microscopy characterization methods, we correlate the effect of local structure and compositional changes directly to the material strength and creep properties.

 For more details and specific research topics, you can go through our website and publications.
