By engineering the length scales, morphology, crystallography and chemistry of interfaces, nanocomposites can deliver mechanical properties that exceed what could be achieved from a single-phase material alone. The January, 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin highlights recent developments in mechanics of nanocomposites that are composed of a combination of metallic, polymer, biological, and ceramic materials and outline the challenges and opportunities for future research directions.
This webinar will expand on the Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A will be held with each of the speakers following their talks.
