10th European APT Workshop

10th European APT Workshop

In the European atom probe tomography workshop we aim to foster the exchange of new ideas in atom probe tomography and field ion microscopy community, especially those aspects not regularly covered in scientific publications. We therefore put special emphasis on peer-to-peer discussions around poster presentations and provide a choice of tutorials given by renown experts for the advanced atom probe user/scientist. We also aim to integrate scientists that are interested in applying atom probe tomography in an emerging field into the community. This will foster knowledge transfer between new applicatons and fundamental reserach in the physics of APT. We specially invite poster contributions. Details about the scientific and training program will be announced shortly. Registraton deadline is the 26th of October 2018. [more]

Opening Symposium for Advanced S/TEM and APT Facilities

The Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH (MPIE) is happy to announce the opening symposium for advanced S/TEM and APT facilities, scheduled on 5th - 6th November 2018. We are pleased to celebrate this inauguration by a stimulating scientific colloquium with renowned experts and friends from all over the world. Topics of the symposium will include:• Development of advanced APT and (S)TEM techniques• New horizons in correlative (S)TEM and APT• Application to catalysis and energy materials• Interface science. We look forward to greeting you in Düsseldorf! [more]

MPIE Workshop: Mechanisms of White Etching Matter Formation

MPIE Workshop: Mechanisms of White Etching Matter Formation

The Max-Planck-Insititut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf cordially invites academic and industrial researchers to the workshop on WEM formation, taking place on October 23nd 2018. This workshop will focus on the fundamental materials scientific processes behind this phenomenon. For this we have invited a number of speakers from complementary fields that are crucial for understanding the phenomenon. Topics will range from WEM formation mechanisms in bearings and rails, over WEM generation by heat, surface machining and high pressure torsion, and the role of hydrogen and electric current, to the remarkable resistance of high nitrogen steels to WEC failure. Participants must register till September 30th. The event is financed by the BMBF through grant 03SF0535 and is free of charge. [more]

Exploring Surface Interactions at the Molecular Scale in Tribological Applications Exploring Surface Interactions at the Molecular Scale in Tribological Applications

In this talk the contribution of molecular simulations and in particular non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) modelling techniques providing unique insights into the nanoscale behaviour of lubricants is discussed. NEMD has progressed from a tool to corroborate theories of the liquid state to an instrument that can directly evaluate important fluid properties, and is now moving towards a potential design tool in tribology. The key methodological advances which have allowed this evolution will be highlighted. This will be followed by a summary of bulk and confined NEMD simulations of liquid lubricants and lubricant additives, as they have progressed from simple atomic fluids to ever more complex, realistic molecules. Confined NEMD simulations have revolutionised our fundamental understanding of the behaviour of very thin lubricant films between solid surfaces. This includes the density and viscosity inhomogeneities in confined films, as well as important tribological phenomena such as stick-slip and boundary slip. It is also being increasingly employed to study shear localisation behaviour in thicker films subjected to high pressures.The inclusion of chemical reactivity for additives and their adsorption to metal surfaces and oxides will be also discussed with examples given of how Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations can be used to provide further insight when the focus is on the physics and chemistry that governs film formation. Coupling between molecular and continuum simulation methods for large systems will also be briefly discussed. [more]
