Iowa State professor, post-doctoral associate explore potential of discovering new phases under high pressure and shear

Valery Levitas—Schafer 2050 Challenge Professor and faculty member of aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering—and his post-doctoral associate Mahdi Javanbakht, have published the paper “Phase transformations in nanograin materials under high pressure and plastic shear: nanoscale mechanisms,” in the high-impact journal Nanoscale. There are two main challenges in the discovery of new high-pressure phases and the transformation … Continue reading Iowa State professor, post-doctoral associate explore potential of discovering new phases under high pressure and shear
