Abstract

The nano-layered nature of the MAX phases, with atomic planes of A-atoms interleaving rock salt-structured [M6C]-octahedra, forms the basis for their unique set of both ceramic- and metal-like properties. This article aims to provide a brief introduction to MAX phases, focusing on their multi-element nano-layered structure, the processing of powders, thin film and bulk material synthesis, and their attractive properties.
