Workshop on Nucleation

On Monday 1 April 2019, the 4TU.Research Centre High-Tech Materials is organizing a Workshop on Nucleation.

Nucleation

Nucleation is among the most fascinating processes in materials science, whereas it is crucial for the production and behaviour of all materials. Taking place at the smallest length and time scales, experimental observation is challenging. Theoretical frameworks have been proposed through recent decades, but predictive power is limited for many aspects of nucleation.

Aim

This workshop aims to bring scientists with interest and expertise on nucleation throughout the different types of materials and processes together for an exchange of ideas and observations, looking for the crucial characteristics of nucleation.

Keynote speaker

Prof. A. Lindsay Greer

Professor of Materials Science, head of Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy, University of Cambridge

Title: Nucleation of Solidification as an Athermal Process

Prof. Greer's research interests are: metallic glasses and crystal nucleation, grain refinement in casting, and chalcogenide thin films for phase-change data storage.


Programme

Prof.dr.ir. Andre ten Elshof

Inorganic Materials Science Group, University of Twente
Preliminary title: Nucleation of BaTiO3 ternary oxide nanoparticles at room temperature

Dr. Joost Duvigneau

Materials Science and Technology of Polymers Group, University of Twente
Topic: Foam cell nucleation

Dr.ir. Erik Offerman

Materials Science and Engineering, Delft University of Technology
Preliminary title: Preferential Nucleation during Polymorphic Transformations in Steel

Simone Dussi PhD

Physical Chemistry and Soft Matter, Wageningen UR
Preliminary title: Nucleation of nothing: how disordered materials break

Hanglong Wu MSc

Materials and Interface Chemistry, Eindhoven University of Technology
Preliminary title: Using Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy to study Nucleation
