Small- and Wide-Angle Scattering for industrial materials far from equilibrium

Comments

Rapidly growing applications of 3D printing (additive manufacturing) and similar near net shape manufacturing methods result in complex microstructures far from equilibrium. This raises challenges in their optimization for application - be it in as-manufactured condition or after post-processing. Performance of these products is controlled by a wide range of microstructural feature sizes - from approximately 1 A (phase structure) to hundreds of nanometers and micrometers (grain and voids structures). Microstructures are metastable and can follow unpredictable paths during post-processing. This severely limits application of computer models, the preferred method of optimization. SAXS, SANS, and diffraction of these complex materials, ideally in combination, deliver critically important, quantitative data. This MS will attract talks on metals, ceramics, synthetic biomaterials, polymers manufactured under these industrially relevant conditions.
