NanoSteel to Present Breakthrough Work on Nanostructured Materials at MS+T Next Week

The NanoSteel Company, a leader in bulk materials nanotechnology, today announced that two technical papers and a technical poster will be presented next week at the 2011 Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) Conference and Exhibition, October 16-20 in Columbus, Ohio.

The presentations will focus on NanoSteel research and development breakthroughs in high-strength, iron-based metallic glass and glassy nanomaterials.

"Understanding and Controlling Nanostructure Formation and Development in NanoSteels" will be presented as an invited talk by Daniel Branagan, Ph.D., chief technical officer, at 10:20 a.m. on Tuesday, October 18. The presentation will demonstrate enabling routes to achieve nanoscale structures and link structural changes to increases in physical properties such as hardness, strength and wear resistance.

"Microstructure Exploration of High Strength High Ductility Iron-Based Glassy NanoMaterials" will be presented as a poster by Sheng Cheng, Ph.D., senior staff scientist - bulk material development, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 18. The poster presentation will address the development of high-strength, iron-based glassy nanomaterials with significant tensile ductility and novel work hardening ability.

"High Strength Ductile Glassy Nanomaterial Microwires" will be presented by Alla Sergueeva, Ph.D., director bulk material development, at 3:20 p.m. on Thursday, October 20. The presentation will cover NanoSteel research which has produced high-strength, iron-based steel microwires with tensile ductility up to 8 percent and tensile strength up to 5 GPa.
