UNT researchers use first-of-its kind process to develop wear and corrosion resistant alloys
DENTON (UNT), Texas - Corrosion and wear are very common – they can happen to any material exposed to an environment. But, what if materials could be tested at the atomic level to determine exactly how and why they break down and then be improved to create ultra-high performance alloys? Researchers at the University of North Texas have done just that – and are designing next generation alloys that could be used in bio-implants or even outer space. Their study was recently published in...

UNT partnering with Indian Institute of Technology for bioimplant longevity research
DENTON (UNT), Texas -- As the population age 65 and older in the U.S. – and the world – grows, so does the need for bioimplants, such as artificial knees and hips, dental prosthetics and cardiovascular devices. Implant surgeries can be taxing on older demographics who tend to take longer to recover, and once a bioimplant is inserted, there’s no guarantee it will last. Sundeep Mukherjee,...
