Book Description

Heterostructured materials represent an emerging class of materials that are expected to become a major research field for the communities of materials, mechanics and physics in the next few years. One of the biggest advantages of HS materials is that they can be produced by large-scale industrial facilities and technologies, and therefore can be commercialized without the scaling up and high cost barriers that are often encountered by other advanced materials. This book collects recent papers on the progress in the field of HS materials, especially their fundamental physics. The papers are arranged in a sequence of chapters that will help new researchers entering the field to have a quick and comprehensive understanding of HS materials, including the fundamentals and recent progress in their processing, characterization, and properties.

Xiaolei Wu has been a professor at the State Key Laboratory of Nonlinear Mechanics, Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, since 2003. He received his BS in materials science from Taiyuan University of Technology, China, in 1986, and his PhD from Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, China, in 1995. His current research focuses on developing and understanding heterostructure and deformation physics in advanced metallic materials for structural applications.

Yuntian Zhu has recently joined the City University of Hong Kong as chair professor, before which he was a distinguished professor at North Carolina State University, where he worked from 2007 to 2020. He worked as a postdoc, staff member and team leader at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) until 2007 after obtaining his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 1994. In recent years he has focused on the deformation mechanisms at dislocation level and mechanical behaviors of heterostructured materials, nano/ultrafine-grained materials, and carbon nanotube composites. He is an experimentalist with primary interest in fundamental aspects of materials research and also in designing materials with superior strength and ductility. Prof. Zhu and his colleagues are pioneers of the emerging field of heterostructured materials.
