Scientists from Russian and Ukrainian higher educational institutions have created and studied the properties of the alloy of cobalt, chromium, iron, Nickel and manganese, not losing strength and flexibility even at very low temperatures.
"now Scientists worldwide are showing great interest in the so-called vysokopatogennym alloys. They consist of 4-5 or more components in approximately equal proportions, in contrast to conventional metal alloys, which are based on one element ", – quotes RIA "news" the scientist Nikita Stepanov of the Belgorod state University.
Such alloys, As Scientists tell us, was invented not so long ago – the term "pysakointialue alloys" appeared in 2004, and research in this area was started five to seven years ago. According to Stepanova, the practical use of such alloys was minimal until the advent of the development of his group. Stepanov and his colleagues from the Belarusian state University and the Kharkiv physics and technology Institute were able to deprive one of the most promising vishakantaiah alloys, CoCrFeNiMn, its main disadvantage of low mechanical strength. The connection is very ductile and malleable even at very low temperatures where "normal" metals become extremely fragile and brittle, however, it is not difficult to deform even by a small force. Russian and Ukrainian Scientists found that this alloy can be steady, adding one percent carbon and processed it in a special way. As the Scientists, Such alloys have the ability to motivate the manufacturers of rocket engines, machines, nuclear industry and physicians. Remember, in the last month of summer the Scientists of the National research technological University "MISIS" for the first time in Russia created a new type of powerful permanent magnets that retain their Properties at extreme temperatures. The properties of the new magnet make it indispensable for use in different devices-from engines to navigation systems.
