Computer Simulations Show Aluminum’s Odd Behavior

25 October, 2002 - Less than a minute read

Aluminum, a metal known for its conductivity, could behave like a ceramic or semiconductor in some situations, according to the report. The metal may also endure mechanical stress better than copper, which is typically considered to be a stiffer metal, in nanotechnology applications. The findings could point to improved nanoelectronics.
