A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Seeing Through Metals by Jack Nutting of the Department of Metallurgy,
University of Cambridge
During the past year outstanding advances have taken place in the application of the electron-microscope to metallurgical problems. As a result it is now possible to check, by direct experimental observation of ' dislocation ' movements, the various theories advanced to account for the plastic properties of metals.
An interesting outcome of this work is the demonstration that the properties of thin metal foils differ from those of bulk material, and this may lead to a way of producing metallic components with very different properties from those usually encountered.
