Microtest 3-point bending stage

Dr Xavier Vanden Eynde works at CRMGroup in Liège. Part of his goals is to improve the analytic and imaging capabilities for the support for the development of new processes, steel grades or coated products for a wide range of applications such as automotive and appliance industry. The understanding of the local mechanical behaviour during bending is an important issue to evaluate the flexibility of coating and metal bare substrate. Speaking about the new Deben stage, Xavier said “this new microstage offers a high angle for bending and then, we have been able to investigate the origin of crack initiation and propagation.”

µXCT XRM in situ tensile testing stages

Dr Anton du Plessis is Manager of the CT Scanner Facility at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. The Facility acts as a CT Scan Service provider with the aim to provide a high quality 3D imaging and analysis service, with fast turnaround times. Dr du Plessis talks about the choice of stages and how they are being used: “We decided to purchase the Deben in situ stages to add value especially in applied research projects from the engineering users of the facility. The acquisition was not for one specific project as ours is a multi-user facility focusing on providing top quality and unique facilities for researchers and industry to make use of.”

Centaurus cathodoluminescence detector for geology applications

Professor Robert Hall of the Royal Holloway College University of London leads field based research into the geology of South East Asia and the western Pacific. Samples are analysed in the UK using several techniques including cathodoluminescence, CL. For example in samples of zircon, CL images can reveal core and rim relationships indicating different growth episodes of the zircons which, in combination with age dating, can provide further insights into the history of the rock.

Previous events

mmc2017 is the latest in an impressive list of events dating back to the 1960s starting with the Micro conference and exhibition series. This later became MicroScience which grew ever-bigger until 2010. The RMS hosted the European Microscopy Congress in 2012 which was the catalyst for the current Microscience Microscopy Congress series.
