Scientists from International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI) has developed an advanced tool “NanoBlitz 3D” in collaboration with Nanomechanics Inc., USA. NanoBlitz 3D can be used for the mapping of nano-mechanical properties of materials such as multi-phase alloys, composites, and multi-layered coatings.
One of the most important aspect of NanoBlitz 3D is its high-throughput, as it requires just a few hours of testing to generate more than 10,000 data points that can be processed using machine learning (ML) algorithms. This tool also helps in carrying out advanced data analysis like identifying and quantifying the mechanical properties of constituent phases, features or components of multi-phase alloys, composites as well as multi-layered coatings.
The NanoBlitz 3D tool was launched in San Antonio, USA on the sidelines of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society 2019 Annual Meeting and Exhibition.
Important takeaways for all competitive exams:
