SYMPOSIUM 7: In Situ Experiments of Microstructure Evolution and Properties



Emerging in situ techniques for property and microstructure characterization have shed new light on the mechanisms responsible for fundamental material properties, and microstructural evolution.  This symposium will include presentations dealing with experimentation and analysis, kinetics, and mechanisms responsible for microstructural evolution interpreted from in situ studies.  The contributions will highlight how in situ techniques have influenced our understanding of mechanisms for materials response at the atomic, nano, and microstructural length scales.  In situ techniques highlighted include but are not limited to electron microscopy, photon-based techniques, and scanning probe methods.  The goal of the symposium is to highlight the important scientific insights into structural and functional oxides and ceramics gained from in situ techniques.


Proposed Sessions

  • Interfacial reactions and processes in complex environments;
  • Mechanisms for micro- and nano-structural evolution;
  • Knowledge gained from in situ mechanical testing of ceramic-based systems;
  • Understanding the dynamic response of functional systems through in situ testing;
  • New insights into atomistic processes at high temperatures or in extreme environments.
