Characterization of Nano-Scale Oxides in Austenitic Stainless Steel Processed by Powder Bed Fusion

Scripta Materialia, Vol. 155, pp. 104-108, July 2018

This study found that 316L stainless steel fabricated through a metal powder bed fusion 3D metal printing process enabled conversion of normally detrimental oxides into beneficial nano-scale particles that strengthened the material and restricted grain growth during post-processing. QCML worked with Northwestern University and University of Pittsburgh on this research.
