Ahmed Shamso presented in the National Association of Corrosion Engineers NACE’s Corrosion 2018 conference in Phoenix, Arizona. The presentation is titled: “Underdeposit Corrosion: Investigating Kinetics within Deposits-Covered Artificial Pits”.


Ahmed Shamso carried out a synchrotron experiment in Diamond Light Source. Conducted in-situ synchrotron XANES, XRD and XRF measurements on electrochemically controlled Artificial Pits under different deposits to study Underdeposit corrosion in sour environment.


Ahmed, Milly, Noora, Bakr and Mary had a successful beam time on beam line I18 at the Diamond Light Source from 26 April - 1 May, where we were investigating under deposit corrosion using artificial 1D pits, u(micro symbol)-XANES, u(micro symbol)-XRF mapping and XRD.


Milly and Aigerim had a successful beam time on beam line 7-2 at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource from 7-11 May. We successfully performed electrochemical in-situ grazing incidence x-ray diffraction of the passive layer on an Fe16Cr single crystal.


Milly and Aigerim have been accepted to present a poster at the International Society of Electrochemistry conference in Bologna 3-7 September 2018.


Milly has been accepted to present posters at the Gordon Research Seminar and Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Aqueous Corrosion, and Mary will be a discussion leader in the Advanced Characterisation and Modelling section at the GRC.
