A team led by Dr. Wen Chen, assistant professor in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department, and Dr. Ting Zhu of Georgia Institute of Technology, have successfully 3D printed a new dual-phase, nanostructured high-entropy alloy that exceeds the strength and ductility of other state-of-the-art additively manufactured materials. This breakthrough—which was published in Nature—could lead to higher-performance components for applications in aerospace, medicine, energy and transportation. See UMass News Office story.
