A Phase Field Model for Solidification of an Eutectic Alloy
As the earth's core is primarily iron, the study of the
mineral physics of the earth
requires knowledge iron's property's, including its phases.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology,
, has sponsored research on the phases and phase diagrams of various
Off-center impurities in IV-VI semiconductors
affect phase transitions in ways that are considered in a number of on-line papers.

history of stainless steel
This link will take you to the
The World of Materials
and give a good overview of materials and their properties.
Some good links to other universities can be found at the
Materials Science (Engineering and Technology)
A Web resource that was helpful in the multimedia portion of this project was at the
page at NC State University.
Also at NC State, an excellent overview of
Visualizations in Materials Science.
