Study Finds Metal Foams Capable of Shielding X-rays, Gamma Rays, Neutron Radiation
Ph.D. alumnus co-authors journal paper
Research from North Carolina State University shows that lightweight composite metal foams are effective at blocking X-rays, gamma rays and neutron radiation, and are capable of absorbing the energy of high impact collisions. The finding means the metal foams hold promise for use in nuclear safety, space exploration and medical technology applications.
