25. Characterization of nanoscale precipitates in a new 2GPa strength steel using small angle x-ray scattering
Prof. Christopher Hutchinson (Monash University)
Steels are used extensively in the manufacture of automobiles. They may not sound like advanced materials to those not involved in their development – after all they have been available for centuries. However, if we consider a typical modern automobile, none of the steels found in the structure existed 10 years ago. These are engineering alloys that are being intensively developed and...
6. In-situ Small Angle X-ray Scattering Investigation of Formation of Meso-porous Silica Nanoparticles and Swelling-Shrinking Growth Mechanism
Mr Zhifeng Yi (Institute for Frontier Materials)
The general explanation of how MSNs grow is that the silica monomers hydrolysed from silica precursor adsorbed onto surfactant micelles and condensed into silica to form particles. However, the detailed growth mechanism of MSNs still remains unknown especially for the MSNs with small particle size. Herein, time-resolved SAXS with a synchrotron source was employed to investigate the growth of...
134. Materials Characterisation and X-ray Free Electron Laser Science at the Centre of Excellence for Advanced Molecular Imaging
Dr Brian Abbey (La Trobe University)
With the recent availability of X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs) and the prospect of Diffraction Limited Storage Rings (DLSRs) just around the corner, the number of major new scientific breakthroughs in the area of coherent X-rays science is likely to rise sharply over the next few years. The past twelve months has already seen significant progress in the field including 3D imaging of...
Dr Mark Styles (CSIRO Manufacturing Flagship)
Metallic glasses have attracted substantial attention in recent years due to their favourable combinations of high strength and corrosion resistance relative to conventional crystalline alloys. These properties make glassy metals appealing for applications such as surgical tools, electronics and sporting goods. However, glassy metals are metastable and crystallisation occurs when they are...
