Metals

Metals have defined “high-tech” for millennia and are critical in applications as diverse as buildings, infrastructure, transportation, manufacturing, and nanofabricated devices such as microelectronics and microelectromechanical systems. However, the structure/processing/property relations that have been elaborated for structural metals are not valid for small length scales and in all environments. An exciting research theme at Cornell is aimed at understanding and controlling the behavior of metals in new regimes.
