Abstract

Metallic glasses respond to radiation in qualitatively different ways than crystalline solids. I will describe two distinctive mechanisms of radiation response in metallic glasses, identified through a series of ½ billion-atom simulations using molecular dynamics. In the first, inter-nuclear scattering causes localized melting and quenching at rates approaching 1014 K/s, giving rise to nanoscale “super-quenched zones” (SQZs) with exceptionally high free volume. In the se...

Abstract

In an energy landscape with increased environmental concerns and reduced availability of fossil fuels, electrochemical systems will likely play a major role for automotive and grid-storage applications. For the discovery and integration of materials that provide low-cost, long-lifetime solutions, both microscopic and macroscopic theory play an important role. Microscopic theory may predict materials with the desired behavior, while macroscopic modeling extracts critical ...
