Nanocrystalline Al-Si alloy-based composites containing carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were produced by hot rolling ball-milled powders. During the milling process, the grain size was effectively reduced and the Si element was dissolved in the Al matrix. Furthermore, CNTs were gradually dispersed into the aluminum powders, providing an easy consolidation route using a thermo-mechanical process. The composite sheet containing 3 vol.% of CNTs shows ∼520 MPa of yield strength with a 5% plastic elongation to failure.
