Nature Materials reports: Two Steps to Densify …

 

… and a 15-year old mystery solved. Using simulations UM researcher Kieffer and his postdoctoral research associates Huang and Durandurdu have uncovered a ubiquitous mechanism by which certain inorganic compounds densify under pressure. This finding is important for understanding the response of materials under severe mechanical impacts and the deformation...
