High Performance Alloys
The term High Performance Alloys encompasses a wide array of material systems. It usually denotes alloys that can withstand extreme environments, e.g. high temperatures or corrosive atmospheres, show an exceptional combination of strength and ductility or exhibit unique properties such as the shape-memory effect. The aim of the High Performance Alloys Group is to optimize existing materials and discover new alloys through systematic exploration of the relevant multi-dimensional alloying spaces.
