    Aluminum–brass composite is produced by ARB process up to nine passes. Recrystallization and formation of new grains start from the 3rd pass and continues to the 7th pass. Intensity of the textures decreases after recrystallization; Dillamore and Copper components are the main textures of the composite.

  2. An Evaporative Initiated Chemical Vapor Deposition Coater for Nanoglue Bonding

    A simplified evaporative initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) coater is developed for submicron bond gaps in materials with potentially imperfect surfaces. A robust bonding process is designed to overcome the most common irregular surface features (curvature, roughness, and burrs) followed from contact elasticity analysis. Bond gaps of 0.2–1.5 µm are achieved in combinations of common plastics, metals, and ceramic-like foils.

    Ionic liquids (ILs) are fascinating materials with unique combination of solid and liquid properties. In this review, we discuss the recent progress on their potential application as boundary lubricants with the emphasis on the relationship between the molecular arrangement of ILs confined to a solid and the tribological properties.

  4. Diversity in Addressing Reaction Mechanisms of Nano-Thermite Composites with a Layer by Layer Structure

    Layer-by-layer structured Al–CuO and Al–NiO nanoparticles are investigated via characterization of their microstructures and elemental mapping. Experimental data indicates for Al–CuO the reaction involves decomposition of CuO into oxygen, while for Al–NiO migration of reactive species across the conducting surface is critical.

  5. 3D Printing of Diamond Tools for Dental Ceramics Processing
