- Adjustment of the Optical Properties of Dispersion Derived Carbon Nanotube Coatings
Bastian Weisenseel, Bodo Zierath, Tobias Fey and Peter Greil
Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201500343
In this work, a solution approach is described to produce carbon nanotube coatings on silicon carbide, while controlling their optical properties by the different coating parameters. Furthermore, the usability of these coatings for solar thermal absorber applications is investigated, with regard to their optical and thermal properties.
- Failure Mechanisms and Scaling Laws of Nanoporous Aluminum: A Computational Study
Nicholas Winter, Matthew Becton, Liuyang Zhang and Xianqiao Wang
Article first published online: 7 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201500315
An all-atom computational study of the mode of failure and the effects of ligand size and relative density on nanoporous aluminum's mechanical properties including Young's modulus, yield strength, ultimate strength, and toughness has been presented in this paper.

- Corrosion Behavior and Mechanical Properties of Ultrafine-Grained Pure Copper with Potential as a Biomaterial
Mozghan Gholami, Mansour Mhaede, Filip Pastorek, Igor Altenberger, Branislav Hadzima, Manfred Wollmann and Lothar Wagner
Article first published online: 6 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201500269
Ultra grain refinement of Cu leads to a marked increase of the tensile strength. The Corrosion resistance increased by slight swaging then decreased with further swaging, as indicated in the TOC Figure. Release of Cu2+ increased by slight swaging then decreased with further deformation.
- Selective Laser Melting of Titanium Alloys and Titanium Matrix Composites for Biomedical Applications: A Review
Lai-Chang Zhang and Hooyar Attar
Article first published online: 6 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201500419
Titanium materials are ideal targets for selective laser melting (SLM), because they are expensive and difficult to machinery, using traditional technologies. This review extends attractive progresses in SLM of all types of titanium, their composites and porous structures, with focus on the manufacture by SLM and the resulting microstructure and properties and the development of new alloy powder materials. The SLM process and factors involved are also briefly reviewed.
