Members of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and The Texas A&M University System recently led a workshop aimed at assessing current efforts in high-volume, flexible, and agile materials sample preparation and target fabrication, fostering collaborative interactions that take advantage of present advances, and considering initiatives that could attract sponsor support.
Levi McClenny, a doctoral candidate who holds a Design of Energy Materials fellowship and was recently appointed student regent for the state of Texas, has utilized the program to gain insight as to what happens at the microstructure level in materials.
In a collaborative study involving Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE), a unique severe plastic deformation (SPD) process, researchers Dr. Ibrahim Karaman from Texas A&M University and Drs. Don Susan and Andrew Kustas of Sandia National Laboratories were able to improve the mechanical properties of magnetic alloys without changing their magnetic properties through microstructural refinement. This process has proven to be troublesome in the past.
Engineers from Texas A&M University and Virginia Tech report important new insights into nanoporous gold--a material with growing applications in several areas, including energy storage and biomedical devices--all without stepping into a lab.
Dr. Alan Needleman, TEES Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Materials Science at Texas A&M University, chaired the program committee for the 2016 annual conference of The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST).
