New publication in Acta Materialia

The article entitled Effect of Nb incorporation in Mo2BC coatings on structural and mechanical properties - ab initio modelling and experiment was published in Acta Materialia. It deals with two of the predicted crystalline nanolaminate X2BC phases, namely Mo2BC and Nb2BC. So far, only Mo2BC has been prepared experimentally, although ab initio calculations show that it should be easier to synthesize the Nb2BC phase than the Mo2BC phase. What happens if we start gradually replacing molybdenum with niobium in the Mo2BC crystalline phase, from the point of view of both calculations and experiments, can be seen in our latest article.
