PROGRAM: RECENT TRENDS IN MICROSTRUCTURAL CHARACTERIZATION  

This relaxed and homey workshop will bring together selected world-wide experts in this field to present and discuss about the current trends in these topics together and inspired by PhD students and younger international researchers from different countries.

The participation at the Workshop "Recent Trends in Microstructure Characterization" is open for all current and former students, researchers and co-workers of the materials science department of the Saarland University as well as for member of the EUSMAT partners. For participation, a registration per e-mail to Dr. F. Soldera (f.soldera@matsci.uni-sb.de) is requested.



Workshop about "Recent Trends in Microstructure Characterization" (3rd - 5th April)

Topic A: Phase transformation - plastic deformation - orientation contrast microscopy

Invited key note speakers:

  • Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank Mücklich (Saarland University):How to understand 3D-Microstructures in the Micro, Nano and Atomic Scale
  • Dr. Simon Zabler (Fraunhofer IIS, Julius-Maximilians-University Würzburg):Current and future trends in industrial CT: Towards high-throughput volume analysis of automotive parts
  • Prof. Dr. Christian Motz (Saarland University): New insights into plasticity and damage evolution of materials by micro-mechanical testing
  • Prof. Dr. Guillermo Requena (German Aerospace Center - RWTH Aachen): Exploiting volumetric characterization techniques to re-design Ti-based alloys by additive manufacturing

Topic B: High throughput and in situ microstructure characterization

Invited key note speakers:

  • Dr. Lionel Germain (Laboratoire the D′Étude des Microstructures et de Mécanique des Matériaux, University of Lorraine): Advanced tools to characterize phase transformations
  • Dr. Tim Dahmen (German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence)
  • Prof. Dr. Peter Felfer (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg): Atom probe tomography of nano materials. Status and current developments

Topic C: High resolution multiscale microstructure characterization

Invited key note speakers:

  • Dr. Stefan Zaefferer (Max Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung): Measurement and observation of elastic stresses and plastic strain phenomena at a local scale using SEM-based diffraction techniques
  • Dr. Timothy Burnett (The university of Manchester): Multiscale 3D microstructure analysis through correlation of X-ray computed tomography and focussed ion beam serial sectioning
  • Dr. Stephanie Bruyere (Institut Jean Lamoure, University of Lorraine): TEM investigations on VO2 nanolayer for thermal solar cells

Social Program

The technical activities will be very well complemented with an exciting social program, which includes sightseeing at the Saarschleife natural wonder with its newly opened treetop walk and spectacular view tower, a visit and workshop-dinner at the Iron-Works Dillinger Hütte.
