Ma creates better metals for manufacturing with nanoparticles

Dr. Chao Ma is thinking small to make a big impact in the field of laser manufacturing. Ma, an assistant professor in the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution at Texas A&M University, and a team of researchers from the University of California at Los Angeles and Missouri University of Science and Technology are using nanoparticles to create effective control of melting and solidification behaviors of materials.
