Southern University Baton Rouge professor Shizhong Yang and graduate
assistant Jialin Lei were contributors to a scientific paper published
in the December 13, 2012 edition of Science Magazine. The paper, "The Texture of Nanocrystalline Nickel: Probing the Lower Size Limit of Dislocation Activity."
The paper delves into the noncrystals as protect coatings for advanced gas turbine and jet engines and their resistance to stress. However, the paper points out, contrary to computer simulations, the tiny size of noncrystals apparently does not safeguard them from defects.
