High Entropy Alloy Manufacturing

December 7, 2017
Washington, DC

High entropy alloys (HEAs), which consist of five or more elements in roughly equal quantities, have gained interest over recent years for their range of unique properties. These advanced alloys have applications in light-weighting, high-temperature environments (e.g. turbines), catalysts, coatings, magnetics, rare-earth replacement, and a range of other areas that require extraordinary material properties or seek to reduce the use of costly elements. HEAs open up a wealth of new opportunities for the United States economy, yet lack an economically viable path to scalable manufacturing.

Metamaterials Manufacturing

Metamaterials can exhibit extraordinary mechanical, acoustic, optical, radio, and surface properties. These materials have the potential to greatly benefit aerospace, defense, medical instrumentation, biomedical, optics, sensing, telecommunication, robotics, and an array of other industry sectors. Many lab-scale prototypes have been created that are small, and use a slow and expensive process; scalable manufacturing is what is missing. MForesight is hosting a workshop to address this issue.
