To explore grain size slimits in metals. To develop new techniques and improving existing plastic deformation process and electro-deposition process to obtain extremely fine nano grained metals by both "bottom -up" and "top-down" methods. To investigate the plastic deformation mechanism and the grain refinement mechanism of nano grains. To research the stability and properties of extremely fine nano grained metals and to explore the path of plainification of materials by grain boundary modification. To explore the grain size limits in metals and the structure properties of metals at those limits.
