Caleb Reese’s defense title: "In Situ Metal Matrix Nanocomposites: Towards Understanding Formation Mechanisms and Microstructural Control”. His postdoctoral research focused on understanding the formation mechanisms and processing-microstructure-property relationships governing aluminum-based metal matrix nanocomposites (MMNCs) fabricated via in situ methods (e.g., combustion synthesis, flux-assisted reaction synthesis). His work was based primarily on investigating the effect of alloying elements and impurities (e.g., silicon) on in situ MMNC reaction pathways, as well as the development of synchrotron X-ray methods to facilitate real-time visualization of MMNC processing.
