October, Electron Microscopy HDR Student Competition

On the 30th of October, 2018 an annual Electron Microscopy HDR students competition was held. 6 submissions from EIS and AIIM focussed on the applications of electron microscopy techniques to study steels, titanium alloy, lubrication, surface damage and interfaces. All presentations were of a high standard.

The winner was Mr Hoang Tran, EIS, MMMB, for his excellent talk “Interface reaction between borate melt and iron oxide under tribological exposure at elevated temperature” ($200 award) and the runner-up was Mr. Ryan Naseri, EMC, AIIM, for the talk “Phase identification in deformation-induced phase transformation in near β-Ti alloy” ($100 award).

Congratulations to the winners and we look forward to see more excellent presentations next year.

September, As part of the 19th International Microscopy Congress (IMC), international workshop Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy was held at EMC on the 8th of September; co-organiser Dr David Mitchell. EMC staff Drs Mitchell, Gazder, Garcia-Casillas and Nancarrow presented papers at IMC19 (10-14 September, 2018) and attended the Exhibition on the recent advances in microscopy in Sydney.

September, Electron Microscopy HDR Student Competition

On the 6th of September, 2017 an annual Electron Microscopy HDR students competition was held. 6 submissions from EIS and AIIM focussed on the applications of electron microscopy techniques to study MXene nanosheets, steel, metallurgical coke, (sub)nanometer sized catalyst and electrode materials for energy storage devices. All presentations were of a high standard.

The winner was Mr Long Ren, ISEM, AIIM, for his excellent talk. High-quality Artificial Vertically Stacked Heterostructure from Bi2O2-layered Materials. ($200 award) and the runner-up was Mr. Sudipta Pramanik, EMC, AIIM, for the talk. Evolution of Microstructure during the Plane Strain Compression of High Mn steel. ($100 award).

Congratulations to the winners and we look forward to see more excellent presentations next year.

Winner - Mr Long Ren

Runner Up - Mr Studipta Pramanik
