The project is focused on the advanced transmission electron microscopy (TEM) characterizations which will be performed on the novel aluminium-based alloys processed by friction stir and 3D printing and involving multi-material (steel, Mg, oxides, Ni-Ti,...) interfaces. The materials are developed or processed in The Institute of Materials and Process Engineering (IMMC) of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain). The TEM characterization techniques include automated crystallographic orientation mapping in TEM (ACOM-TEM), in-situ TEM experiments including heating, cooling and straining as well as high resolution (scanning-) transmission electron microscopy. The TEM-based characterization will be performed under the supervision of Prof. Nick Schryvers in association with the Electron Microscopy for Materials Science (EMAT) group at the University of Antwerp.
