Abstract Reactive multilayer foils (RMFs) are a class of materials that are comprised of nanometer-scale alternating layers of reacting elements. When energy is input into the RMFs, the small diffusion lengths, created by the small layer thicknesses, allow for the initiation of highly exothermic reactions between the constituents, which become self-propagating due to the enthalpy of formation from the reaction. The result is highly localized, rapid heating and cooling adjacent to the RMF.
