This research center aims to produce high-performance materials with structural and functional properties well enhanced using a process of giant straining (so-called severe plastic deformation process). The center consists of four main divisions such as (1) GS process division, (2) structural materials division, (3) functional materials division and (4) materials characterization division. The center explores not only the mechanisms for the enhanced properties but also practical application of the materials.
