Australian scientists have created a new material based on titanium

The material is 50% stronger than an alloy of similar strength at the same density used in the aerospace industry.

Researchers from RMIT University in Australia have created a new metamaterial that has a level of strength and lightness. It is created using 3D printing and can be used in a variety of industries, including medicine, aviation and aerospace. This is reported in Advanced Materials.

The metamaterial is made of ordinary titanium alloy. It has a unique lattice structure, thanks to which it is surprisingly strong.

During its creation, the authors were inspired by nature and paid attention to the structure of water lilies and corals. This allowed them to develop an effective combination of lightness and strength.

To create this material, the researchers used a 3D printing method using laser fusion in a powder layer. The result was a complex structure with high precision.

"The resulting material, which has a double lattice structure, has a unique ability not to split due to the uniform distribution of stress. However, despite the potential advantages of this material, its production requires specialized technology that is currently not very accessible," the scientists added.

It will be recalled that earlier in Japan, scientists bred the first pigs for transplanting human organs.
