Advanced Neutron and Synchrotron Studies of Materials

at PRICM-8 2013 in Waikoloa, Hawaii (USA), AUG 4-9, 2013

Symposium Organizers:
SHANG Chengjia (China), Masato Ohnuma (Japan), Baek Seok Seong (Korea),
Klaus-Dieter Liss (Australia), Rozaliya Barabash (USA)

Neutron and synchrotron sources are among the flagships of materials characterization. The symposium aims to showcase their state-of-the-art applications, deep into the demands for advancing modern materials and their developments. The specialists from the field of instrumentation and advanced data evaluation will be merged with those working on the latest materials issues, engineering and applied solid-state physics.

Themes comprise, not exhaustively, the following topics:

  • In-Situ Processes

    • time resolved or complex studies

    • taken in-situ or under extreme conditions

    • phase diagrams, pressure, stress

  • Single Grain Resolved Studies

    • grain characterization, grain statistics, orientation relationships

    • defects, grain resolved strain

  • Strain Scanning

    • Strains and residual stresses 

    • state of the art characterization

    • inputs for modeling on multiple length scales

  • Texture Analysis
