Presented by Lisa Rueschhoff, Air Force Research Laboratory Hill Hall 202 Ceramic materials offer great advantages over their metal counterparts, due to their lower density, higher hardness, wear resistance, and higher melting temperatures. However, ceramics are often unusable in high-stress applications due to low fracture toughness causing catastrophic brittle failure, as well as the high cost and difficulty of forming complex shapes. This research addresses these limitations through the preparation of highlyloaded aqueous ceramic suspensions that can be used with,…

Steve Harvey, National Renewable Energy Laboratory Time-of-flght secondary ion spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) is a powerful analytical technique to investigate the distribution of dopants and impurities in solid materials. TOFSIMS is capable of detection limits in the ppm to ppb range, as well as chemical imaging and 3-D tomography at 100-nm lateral resolution. In this talk, I will briefly introduce the fundamentals of the technique and show some examples from recent work that highlight its versatility. These examples include investigating the defect…

Mines/NREL/Materials Science Distinguished Lecture Series/Physics colloquium: Imaging and Controlling Nanoscale Crystal Growth in the Transmission Electron Microscope

March 20, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
Hill Hall, 920 15th St.
Golden, CO 80401 United States

Mines/NREL/Materials Science Distinguished Lecture Series/Physics colloquium Frances M. Ross IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, New York Abstract:  Building functional nanostructures with atomic level precision requires a detailed understanding of materials growth and the physics of self-assembly at the nanoscale. In situ imaging in the transmission electron microscope can provide unique information, because measurements can be made on individual nanostructures while they grow. Here we describe examples in which in situ electron microscopy helps to explore growth mechanisms and suggests…
