Scientists study metals at atomic level

Shear deformation may hold key to next-generation materials Metal Tech News - November 30, 2022

Hoping to gain insights into processes that would create longer-lasting batteries and lighter vehicles, scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Washington are investigating the effects of physical forces on metals at the atomic level as they undergo shear deformation.

Shear deformation occurs when an object changes shape when forces are applied to it but not in the way of just becom...
