ALS Tests the Limits of a Superhard ‘Solution’ of Metal Boride

Superhard materials such as metal borides are in demand as structural and engineering compounds and for next-generation cutting tools. Researchers have now synthesized and tested a mixture, or “solid solution,” of two different metal borides, demonstrating the accuracy of theoretical predictions and opening the door to targeted tuning of desirable material characteristics.
