Intermetallics: Past – Present – Future (A perspective over 40 years)
Facing an increasing demand for new materials with improved properties, intermetallic based materials offer a promising perspective. A possible combination of high strength, low density and good corrosion resistance qualifies them for structural applications, specifically at high temperatures and in severe environments. As some intermetallic phases show unique properties like shape memory and thermoelectric effects or do have appealing magnetic properties they are also of interest for various functional applications. While intermetallics today are well accepted as shape memory alloys they are only now – after three decades of exhaustive research and development – used for structural applications, i.e. in flying gas turbines.
