- Intermetallic β-Solidifying γ-TiAl Based Alloys − From Fundamental Research to Application
Svea Mayer, Petra Erdely, Franz Dieter Fischer, David Holec, Michael Kastenhuber, Thomas Klein and Helmut Clemens

Intermetallic titanium aluminides have gone their way from intensive fundamental research on a laboratory scale to an innovative class of light-weight high-temperature materials which have found their application in aerospace and automotive industries. The present review bridges the gap from development of the so-called TNM alloy, through structural characterization, engineering properties, manufacturing and processing technologies to all aspects of application.

Nature uses several strategies to turn weakness into strength. By combining few universal building blocks confined to a specific size and arranged into different substructures interacting through carefully designed interfaces, Nature is able to produce a large variety of multiscale hierarchical materials, which are efficient, multifunctional and sustainable.
- Laser Powder Bed Fusion – Materials Issues and Optimized Processing Parameters for Tool steels, AlSiMg- and CuCrZr-Alloys
Bruno Buchmayr, Gerhard Panzl, Alexander Walzl and Christopher Wallis
Version of Record online: 23 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600667
The Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) process is suitable to process ferrous and non-ferrous materials. The work describes the usability of two new steel grades for L-PBF process, the influence of post-weld heat treatments on the AlSi10Mg alloy, including microstructure, as well as mechanical properties and the investigations on CuCrZr parts, discussing mechanical, and thermal properties after heat treatment.
- Fabricating Three-Dimensional Periodic Micro Patterns on Photo-Resists Using Laser Interference Lithography
Florian Rößler, Valentin Lang, Denise Günther and Andrés Fabián Lasagni
Version of Record online: 21 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600855
Mushroom geometries as in the springtails have demonstrated to show outstanding surface functionalities such as non-wetting and prevention of bacterial settlement. This study focus on the development of a laser-based fabrication method to produce three-dimensional periodic patterns with undercuts irradiating a multilayered system of SU-8 and LOR using interference patterns.
- Microstructure, Texture, and Mechanical Properties of Alternate α/β Mg–Li Composite Sheets Prepared by Accumulative Roll Bonding
Feng Zhong, Tianzi Wang, Ruizhi Wu, Legan Hou, Jinghuai Zhang, Xinlin Li, Milin Zhang, Anping Dong and Baode Sun
Version of Record online: 20 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600817
Mg–5Li–1Al sheet and Mg–12Li–1Al sheet are used to prepare α/β Mg–Li composite sheets with accumulative roll bonding. The microstructure of the specimens is investigated. The texture and mechanical properties are improved. In the interface areas between sheets, a cross shear zone exists.
