Bulk-nanocomposite synthesis through severe plastic deformation

Background:

The main objective of this application is to develop a methodology allowing the prediction of the required SPD production steps to generate a desired nanostructured bulk material or nanocomposite. The development of the improved methodology should be used to generate novel nanocomposites for structural as well as functional applications with tailored properties. As target groups for these new materials micromechanical, magnetic, electrical and even medical applications can be considered.
