Dislocations in Laves phases – Phantastical beasts and how to understand them

Conference Dates

September 29-October 4, 2019


How macroscopically hard and brittle materials deform is not well understood in many cases with not even the dominant slip systems known and no critical stresses or dislocation mechanisms available. This is true even for the most abundant type of intermetallic phase, the Laves phases. However, this knowledge is essential to improve many metallic-intermetallic composite alloys, such as Mg with an interconnected Laves network in Mg-Al-Ca alloys preventing creep.
