        May: Prof. Weihs gave an invited talk titled Nanostructured Metal Fuels for Defeating Bio-Agents and 3D Metal Weaves for Cooling and High-Temperature Damping at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of the Israel Institute of Technology, in Haifa, Israel.

        May: Prof. Weihs gave an invited talk titled Atomic Diffusion and Phase Transformations in Nanolayered Films at the International Conference on Diffusion in Materials, in Haifa, Isreal.

        April: Prof. Weihs gave an invited talk titled Observing and Characterizing the Deformation of Mg and its Alloys at High Strain Rates at the Mg Workshop, in Baltimore, Maryland.

            March: The Weihs lab travelled to Argonne National Laboratory for three days of experiments in combusion. In-situ x-ray phase contrast images were taken on combusting Al:Zr reactive ball-milled powders at beamline 32-ID-B of the Advanced Photon Source. For the first time, bubble nucleation, rapid growth, and a critical growth rate threshold necessary to cause microexplosions have been measured in pure metal or metal composite combusion.
