Research from Prof. Minor's and Prof. Ritchie’s groups led to the creation of pure titanium with a nanotwinned structure that demonstrated both ultrahigh strength and ductility. By using a processing method called cryo-forging, they demonstrated for the first time a nanotwinned structure in a bulk metal. This method is potentially cost-effective, scalable for commercial production and producesan easily recycled product. This work was featured on the Sept 17, 2021 cover of Science magazine.
