Cars and various electrical devices widely use special heat consumables inside themselves, which is a special design that provides passive and sometimes active cooling – however, at the moment, the main material used in such structures is iron, steel and aluminum. The choice of such materials, which are not the lightest and most resistant to high temperatures, led to a new study prepared by a joint team of specialists in physical engineering from the Russian National University of Science and Technology and LG Electronics, as a result of which a new unique material was presented.
The new material is a special magnesium alloy that has been further modified by the addition of additional layers of materials such as calcium and ytrium, avoiding the traditional problem of a heated magnesium alloy exposed to direct sunlight or high temperatures and igniting.
Moreover, the new physicochemical modification of the magnesium alloy is characterized by the use of an alternative set of supporting substances – now, instead of using neodymium, lanthanium and thorium, which are quite costly and problematic in many respects, the team of united specialists has applied such a set of elements as silicon, zinc and calcium, which led to an additional increase in the index of thermal stability and electrical conductivity. Ultimately, such a variant of the magnesium alloy may very soon become an integral part of modern electronics and cars, and in all directions.
There is hardly any doubt that the combined team of physical engineering specialists from Russia and Korea will continue their research – since even preliminary results clearly demonstrated that they did indeed manage to offer something really interesting and curious about a whole range of points and features. In addition, there is a possibility that in the very near future this alloy will be further improved by integrating new elements.
