Beyond Nanomaterials

Guest edited by Jae Pyung Ahn (Korea Institute of Science and Technology), Kwangyeoul Lee (Korea University)
The prospects in nanomaterial-driven technological breakthroughs are providing a strong research thrust in the area of energy conversion, storage, sensor, theranosis, environmental remediation, etc. While the past decades have witnessed a great surge of nanomaterials and their applications, the desire for new nanomaterials and designs for unexpected properties, groundbreaking improvements in performance, and novel applications never ceases to fuel the research interest. This thematic series in Nano Convergence covers nanomaterial synthesis and hybridization and their applications in energy conversion, storage, sensor, theranosis, environmental remediation, etc, in the hope to provide a guideline for future developments in these fields.

    Understanding dual precipitation strengthening in ultra-high strength low carbon steel containing nano-sized copper precipitates and carbides

    Low carbon ferritic steel alloyed with Ti, Mo and Cu was hot rolled and interrupt cooled to produce nano-sized precipitates of copper and (Ti,Mo)C carbides. The steel had a tensile strength of 840 MPa, an incr...

    Oxidation behavior of AlN/CrN multilayered hard coatings

    We report on the oxidation behavior of AlN/CrN multilayers at 900 °C, deposited by radio frequency magnetron sputtering. It is shown that oxidation in this system is controlled by diffusion of Cr towards the s...
