  • US Patent No. 9211586
  • Issued: December 15, 2015
  • Status: Active
Materials

A non-faceted nanoparticle reinforced metal matrix composite having increased ductility, while maintaining strength. In particular, a non-faceted nanoparticle reinforced metal matrix composite is provided comprised of spherical or ellipsoidal shaped (non-faceted) nanoparticles comprising one or more of boron carbide, titanium diboride, silicon nitride, alumina and boron nitride, and a nanostructured matrix composite comprised of one or more metals and/or metal alloys. In addition, a method of manufacturing such a non-faceted nanoparticle reinforced metal matrix composite is provided.
