    Icosahedral superstrength at the nanoscale 

    Kunka, Cody; Yang, Xiaokun; An, Qi; Subhash, Ghatu (American Physical Society, 2018)
    Materials that exhibit extreme hardness, low mass density, and high thermal/chemical stability can often be modeled as simple modifications to the ? -rhombohedral phase of boron. To facilitate the development and discovery ...

    Nanotwinning and amorphization of boron suboxide 

    Kunka, Cody; An, Qi; Rudawski, Nicholas; Subhash, Ghatu; Zheng, James; Halls, Virginia; Singh, Jogender (Elsevier, 2018)
    Recently, researchers discovered that in contrast to isolated twins, periodic twins with nanoscale spacing can dramatically improve mechanical properties. Ceramics engineers now seek to incorporate this “nanotwinning” into ...
