In this entry, the cryomilling process and its products are covered, including the formation of nanostructured powders and their thermal stability. The microstructural changes that occur during consolidation and secondary processing are also considered. Finally, the mechanical properties of the bulk product will be discussed. The discussion focuses on metals, with particular attention paid to aluminum alloys, and their potential as high-strength structural materials.
