Facile fabrication of luminescent rare-earth-doped PS/AA composites for anti-counterfeiting applications

Herein, a facile method to develop luminescent PS/AA/Rare-Earth-doped composites was presented. The PS/AA microspheres were first carried out via one-pot dispersion polymerization. Then, the PS/AA microspheres bearing free carboxyl groups were …

New observations of the twinning effect and austenite stability in intercritical quenched and tempered steel with high strength

To optimize the formability and strength of hot-rolled Fe-10Mn-0.4C-2Al-0.6 V medium Mn steel, intercritical quenching and tempering processes were carried out. The strength of the steel was enhanced, and the Lüdders platform was eliminated. The …
