Abstract:

At high pressures, such as those encountered in ballistic impact, boron carbide B4C suffers from loss of crystallinity, referred to as a morphization, to form nanometer scale amorphous bands. Through experimental and theoretical investigations, current research seeks to enhance our understanding of B4C crystal structurepolymorphism so as to explore novel avenues for improving its resistance to a morphization.
