Principal Researchers

Jun Cui at Ames Laboratory leads the CMI project "Application targeted magnetic materials"

The project goal is to bridge CMI’s magnet research to manufacturing. The effort consists of two major tasks: 1) Conventional Powder Metallurgical process (casting, powderization, bonding or sintering), 2) Novel process (Friction consolidation & extrusion, dynamic magnetic compaction, Direct ink write, electrophoric deposition, selective laser melting). Both tasks work on standard materials such as NdFeB and SmCo, as well as the new materials identified by the CMI discovery efforts.
