By shrinking samples of metallic glass to nanoscale size, Yale researchers have discovered they can create new materials with potentially new applications.

They discovered a new form of metallic glasses by making metallic-glass rods so small that there is no room for the nuclei — a phenomenon the researchers call “nucleus starvation” — leading to a new crystalline phase. The rods are less than 35 nanometers in diameter, more than 2,000 times smaller than a human hair.
