Guenole et al. Scripta Materialia 2022Our new letter Features of a nano-twist phase in the nanolayered Ti3AlC2 MAX phase is now published in Scripta Materialia. I am glad to share this work accomplished with my colleagues from the LEM3, Dr. Guitton and Dr. Taupin, as well as with our collaborators Dr. Vallet and Dr. Yu. Our investigations revealed the nano-scale features of a nano-scaled twisted phase in the complex intermetallic Ti3AlC2 phase (so-called MAX phase). Additionnaly, we explored the continuum representation of such complex rotational defect.
