Novel welding technique a bust for autos, but spot-on for advanced multimaterial structures

Researchers at Ohio State University recently announced a new welding technique capable of bonding dissimilar metals developed though a project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Dubbed vaporized foil welding (VFA), this technique rapidly disc...
