It is general knowledge that materials expand with increasing temperature and contract with decreasing temperature. Only few materials seem to neither expand nor contract over a certain temperature range and thus feature near zero thermal expansion (ZTE) behavior. These materials are the focus of recent scientifi c work [ 1–5 ] and have potential technical applications in both structural materials, e.g., precision engineered parts, microdevices, and systems that are subject to thermal shock… CONTINUE READING
