    We have investigated the effects of thermal annealing on ex-situ chemically vapor deposited submonolayer graphene islands on polycrystalline Cu foil at the atomic-scale using ultrahigh vacuum scanning tunneling microscopy. Low-temperature annealed gra . . .

    Oxidation is a corrosion phenomenon where metals degrade by reacting with their surrounding environment. There is always a need for better and more durable metals that can be used to create load-bearing structures. The objective of this project was to . . .

    Abstract
    Omenwu, William
    The corrosion underneath thin molten salt films is a major problem in some industries. A notable example is the "hot corrosion" of turbine blades in aircraft flying over marine atmospheres or land-based turbines located near the sea. Simulating this t . . .

    The deleterious effects of corrosion are mitigated by the application of coatings that can form a protective oxide layer. Halide Activated Pack Cementation (HAPC) is a coating method in which a halide vapor is generated within a pack and undergoes rea . . .

    Abstract
    Chu, Isabella
    Metallic materials such as stainless steel can become brittle and weak when corroded. The rate of corrosion increases at high temperatures, and in turn, the effect of corroding or oxidizing the metal can lead to a rapid loss of engineering function an . . .

    Transcatheter aortic valves are manufactured with valve leaflets usually made from a single layer of porcine pericardium and a self-expanding frame made of a nickel-titanium alloy (Nitinol). The materials of construction of this prosthesis should have . . .

    Metallic alloys are often degraded when used in corrosive, high temperature environments such as in gas turbines or nuclear power plants. To mitigate these effects, the surface of the existing alloy can be modified through the halide-activated pack ce . . .
