Dr. Dimiduk led the intermetallics field for the Air Force, conducting in-house research and motivating efforts at other laboratories and universities. Throughout the 1990’s, work by Dennis and his colleagues on titanium aluminides and refractory intermetallics was at the leading edge of world-wide exploration of these materials. Their research led to growth of use of titanium aluminides in gas turbine and automotive engines—a major contribution to fuel savings.
