The AZoM.com "Materials Thought Leaders" series is a selection of articles that cover the key technology areas where materials are making an impact and where they will make an increasing impact. All the articles are written by experts who have been invited as recognised leaders in their fields to provide a "state of the art" contribution.
Plenary lecture speaker for Pittcon 2019, Fenella France, describes the importance in cultural heritage science in the preservation of materials for future generations.
Prof. Mathias Goeken and his team work with metals and their mechanical properties, developing new materials for high temperature applications such as high temperature coatings
In this interview, Prof. Hanno zur Loye from the University of South Carolina, describes his research involving X-Ray Diffraction to investigate the crystal growth of new materials.
In the beginning, we wanted to better understand the behaviour of nanoparticles in ceramic materials, and more specifically, for ceramic materials used in biomedical applications. We wanted to be able to produce nanocomposites from just a very small amount of powdered starting material.
In this interview, AZoM talks to Dr. William G. Fahrenholtz about his research, and how he uses Phase Equilibrium Diagrams within it.
In this interview we speak to Professor Lee Cronin, regius chair of chemistry at Glasgow university about his current research and how he is using self optimising reactor systems to break new ground and open up the field of chemistry
Professor Sir Konstantin ‘Kostya’ Novoselov.
There is a lot of potential benefit for industry to have self-healing materials, particularly because the key benefits at the top of the pyramid would be that it leads to a longer lifecycle of the material.
AZoM talks to Ralph Rowe about how he has used X-Ray Diffraction to discover new mineral species.
AZoM speaks to Dr Karbach to learn about the work Currenta Analytics do to investigate material complaints for their customers.
