Title: Review: mechanical behavior of metal/ceramic interfaces in nanolayered composites—experiments and modeling

In this study, recent experimental and modeling studies in nanolayered metal/ceramic composites are reviewed, with focus on the mechanical behaviors of metal/nitrides interfaces. The experimental and modeling studies of the slip systems in bulk TiN are reviewed first. Then, the experimental studies of interfaces, including co-deformation mechanism by micropillar compression tests, in situ TEM straining tests for the dynamic process of the co-deformation, thickness-dependent fracture behavior, and interrelationship among the interfacial bonding, microstructure, and mechanical response, are reviewed for the specific material systems of Al/TiN and Cu/TiN multilayers at nanoscale. The modeling studies reviewed cover first-principles density functional theory-based modeling, atomistic molecular dynamics simulations, and mesoscale modeling of nanolayered composites using discrete dislocation dynamics. The phase transformation between zinc-blende and wurtzite AlN phases in Al/AlN multilayers at nanoscale is also reviewed. Finally, a summary and perspective of possible research directions and challenges are given.
