A heterogeneous Mg-based nanocomposite reinforced with SiC nanoparticles was synthesized by planetary ball milling and subsequently spark plasma sintering. The material has two distinguished phases: a continuous hard phase consisting of Mg and uniformly distributed SiC particles and an isolated soft phase consisting of pure Mg. Mechanical test revealed that the nanocomposite exhibited significantly increased strength and retained malleability as compared to pure Mg. The results also highlight a new strategy for designing Mg-based composites for high performances. Published by Elsevier B.V.
