Observations of microstructures and defects
- Dominique Schryvers (University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium)
The lecture will summarise the use of conventional as well as novel microscopic techniques for the study of phase transformations. The focus will be on transmission electron microscopy and related spectrocopic techniques used to investigate the behaviour of the internal volume of a material but some surface techniques will also be introduced. Examples of work on alloys and oxides, bulk as well as nanostructures and diffusional as well as displacive transformations will be included.
