Over the past decade, the science of highly porous metals
, including DJO's P2, has significantly advanced, helping to improve implant longevity and ultimately patient outcomes.
However, early investigations of nanoporous Pd mainly focused on the synthesis of porous metals
films or powder with homogeneous pore size distributions, whereas bulk Pd-structure with hierarchical pours is poorly studied.

It can be seen from Figure 2 that the rough surface morphologies characterized by laminar and jagged structures are the unique features of the SSSFFs compared with other sintered porous metals
using melt-extracted and bundle-drawn stainless steel fibers.

Using other salts, the team found that the hot drops could also form nanoscale coatings around tiny objects; porous metals
that, because of their absorption of light, could find use in solar energy; and a hybrid metal-polymer foam that could be useful on spacecraft because of its light weight and heat resistance.
One in six Daphne Jackson Fellows wants to return to research in an engineering discipline, working in a range of fields from designing porous metals
to developing new methods to retrofit buildings to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
Among their topics are manufacturing processes for metal foams, a tomography-based material model and simulation of deformation, heat transfer in metal foams, acoustic properties and applications, porous metals
and metallic foams in orthopedic applications, and aluminum foam applications.
Yeganeh Qotbi, the advantages of this research are simple production method, reasonable price, non-toxicity of the raw material, the ability to load high amount of carbonic material and the possibility to produce other porous metals
