Abstract:

The goal of this Multi-Investigator Research Program MIRP is to achieve an understanding of the science of ultrastructure processing. Ultrastructure processing refers to the manipulation and control of surfaces and interfaces to attain a new generation of high performance materials with predictable properties and environmental insensitivity. Problem areas that may benefit from the use of ultrastructure processing include behavior of particulate solids, adhesion of fillers and reinforcers in composites, corrosion of glasses and glass-ceramics, fatigue of brittle materials, grain boundary attack of ceramics, effects of energetic particle beams, lifetime of non-oxide ceramics, electronic behavior of high band gap semiconductors, multiphase electronic components.
