Hypersonic jets and jet turbines experience intense heating at extreme speeds, which can damage the body of the aircraft and lead to component malfunctions. University of Wisconsin-Madison Prof. Dan Thoma, a leader in materials sciences, and his graduate research assistant Michael Niezgoda have developed a novel molybdenum alloy that can protect these jets up to 1,600 °C — that’s 200 °C more than current methods. This invention lowers maintenance time and costs for aircraft and enables higher mission readiness.
