Abstract : The goal of this Multi-Investigator Research Program (MIRP) is to achieve an understanding of the science of ultrastructure processing. Ultrastructure processing refers to the manipulation and control of surfaces and interfaces to attain a new generation of high performance materials with predictable properties and environmental insensitivity. Problem areas that may benefit from the use of ultrastructure processing include: behavior of particulate solids, adhesion of fillers and reinforcers in composites, corrosion of glasses and glass-ceramics, fatigue of brittle materials, grain boundary attack of ceramics, effects of energetic particle beams, lifetime of non-oxide ceramics, electronic behavior of high band gap semiconductors, multiphase electronic components.
