Korean J. Met. Mater. ;59(2):81-98.   Published online 2021 Jan 27
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.2.81

In this work, the effects of post weld heat treatment (PWHT) on the microstructure and mechanical properties of functionally gradient materials (FGM) was investigated. The FGM consisted of five different layers which were mixtures of austenitic stainless steel (type 316L) and ferritic steel (LAS). The ratio of type 316L and..... More

99 Optimization of Oil Adsorption Capacity by Aerogel Powder Synthesized Using Emulsion Droplets as Micro-reactors in Ambient Conditions from Sodium Silicate as Precursor
Young-Sang Cho, Sohyeon Sung, Seung Hee Woo, Young Seok Kim
조영상, 성소현, 우승희, 김영석
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2021;59(2):99-112.   Published online 2021 Feb 5
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.2.99
In this study, silica aerogel particles were synthesized from emulsion droplets as micro-reactors at room temperature under ambient pressure. An economical precursor, sodium silicate, was used as the starting material for silica, and an emulsification technique was applied to form droplets in continuous phase. By controlling the composition of the... More
113 Effect of Ultrasonic Cleaning of Titanium Turning Scraps Immersed in Alkaline Solution and Subsequent Preparation of Ferrotitanium Ingots
Suhwan Yoo, Jikwang Chae, Jung-Min Oh, Jae-Won Lim
Korean J. Met. Mater. ;59(2):113-120.   Published online 2021 Jan 27
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.2.113

Ti has excellent properties but is more expensive than other materials due to its high melting point, high reactivity and difficult processability. One way to lower the production cost of Ti products is to recycle Ti scraps. Before recycling Ti scraps, pretreatment to remove contamination is essential. Ti scraps can..... More

121 Fluorine-based Inductively Coupled Plasma Etching of α-Ga2O3 Epitaxy Film
Ji Hun Um, Byoung Su Choi, Woo Sik Jang, Sungu Hwang, Dae-Woo Jeon, Jin Kon Kim, Hyun Cho
Korean J. Met. Mater. ;59(2):121-126.   Published online 2021 Jan 27
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.2.121

α-Ga2O3 has the largest bandgap (~5.3 eV) among the five polymorphs of Ga2O3 and is a promising candidate for high power electronic and optoelectronic devices. To fabricate various device structures, it is important to establish an effective dry etch process which can provide practical etch rate, smooth surface morphology and..... More

127 Calculated Electric Transport Properties of Thermoelectric Semiconductors Under Different Carrier Scattering Mechanisms
캐리어 산란 메커니즘에 따른 열전반도체의 이론 전자수송 특성 변화
Sang-il Kim, Hyun-Sik Kim
김상일, 김현식
Korean J. Met. Mater. ;59(2):127-134.   Published online 2021 Jan 27
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.2.127

The widespread application of thermoelectric devices in cooling and waste heat recovery systems will be achieved when materials achieve high thermoelectric performance. However, improving thermoelectric performance is not straightforward because the Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity of the materials have opposite trends with varying carrier concentration. Here, we demonstrate that..... More

135 Nucleation and Growth-Controlled Morphology Evolution of Cu Nanostructures During High-Pressure Thermal Evaporation
Eunji Lee, Woomi Gwon, Sangwoo Ryu
Korean J. Met. Mater. ;59(2):135-141.   Published online 2021 Jan 27
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.2.135

The formation of porous material structures has been widely investigated for the development of high-performance energy materials, catalysts, and chemical sensing devices. Various nanoporous structure fabrication methods are based on wet-chemical processes, which require precise control of the process parameters. Physical vapor deposition such as thermal evaporation utilizes high vacuum..... More

142 Fabricating Elastomeric Photomask with Nanosized-Metal Patterns for Near-Field Contact Printing
Sangyoon Paik, Gwangmook Kim, Dongchul Seo, Wooyoung Shim
Korean J. Met. Mater. ;59(2):142-148.   Published online 2021 Jan 27
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.2.142

When an elastomeric photomask is used for near-field contact printing, the high deformability of the elastomer mask plate enables gap-free full contact with the substrate, minimizing the effect of diffraction. This image-transfer technique provides sub-50 nm resolution and depth-of-focus-free lithographic capability with cost-efficient equipment. However, the method’s application is limited..... More
