n.
1. Any of a group of nonmetallic, ceramiclike, usually ferromagnetic compounds of ferric oxide with other oxides, especially such a compound characterized by extremely high electrical resistivity and used in computer memory elements, permanent magnets, and various solid-state devices.

Duplex stainless steels are optimised with respect to mechanical properties and corrosion stability so that their structures contain equal proportions of austenite and ferrite. However, the weldability of duplex steel when the laser-welding process is applied is still under investigation and is particularly related to an increased rate of ferrite formation after welding, induced by the high cooling rates.
