Simultaneous Fast Deformation and Solidification in Supercooled Liquid Gallium at Room Temperature

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The authors demonstrate that it is possible to transform a supercooled liquid metal at room temperature

    into a variety of shapes in solids by combined liquid metal deformation and induced crystallization

    from the supercooling state. The authors discover that both reversible deformation and irreversible

    deformation can be achieved simultaneously for supercooled liquid gallium in alkaline or acid

    electrolytes by using electrodes that are non-wetted or wetted with liquid gallium, respectively. Our

    findings on the simultaneous deformation and solidification offer a novel approach to controlled

    patterning and solidification of supercooled liquid gallium at room temperature.
