DST Seminar: Engineering at the Nanoscale – gaining insight through advanced characterisation
Prof Barbara Shollock

Wednesday 5th December
Materials & Analytical Sciences 2.06
From the gas turbines that power the Airbus to the steels used for cars and food cans, engineering alloys form an important class of materials, but can appear less exciting than headline-grabbing nanomaterials and biomaterials.
Despite their unglamorous press, these alloys require understanding at the nanoscale to develop new alloys and to mitigate failure in service. This talk will review a range of alloys, the challenges they face in service and characterisation approaches to determine their nanoscale chemical, structural and physical behaviour.
