Potential-dependent dynamic fracture of nanoporous gold.


When metallic alloys are exposed to a corrosive environment, porous nanoscale morphologies spontaneously form that can adversely affect the mechanical integrity of engineered structures. This form of stress-corrosion cracking is responsible for the well-known 'season cracking' of brass and stainless steel components in nuclear power generating stations. One… (More)
