Eden will discuss his current findings and give a poster presentation at the 2018 Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) conference in Ohio, USA.

The MS&T conference brings together over 3,200 attendees including scientists, engineers, students, suppliers and business leaders to explore new research, take part in workshops, courses and shape the future of materials science and technology.

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.

Jim Hickey has some publications:

  • Britton & Hickey (2017), “Understanding deformation with high angular resolution electron backscatter diffraction (HR-EBSD)” IOP Conference Proceedings - Proceedings of EMAS-2017/IUMAS-7

And went to two conferences:

  • TMS 2018 (March 2018) – oral – Unravelling Hydrogen Enhanced Failure of Pine-line Steels Using Advanced Microstructural Characterisation Tools
  • UK EBSD (April 2018) – poster - Unravelling Hydrogen Enhanced Failure of Pine-line Steels Using Advanced Microstructural Characterisation Tools – Dafni went to this one too
