NOMATEN HYBRID-SEMINAR, DECEMBER 19th, Atom Probe Tomography Studies of Nuclear Materials

08 December 2023

Atom probe tomography (APT) is a unique analysis technique providing chemical analysis with near atomic resolution in 3D. Here, recent APT research on nuclear materials performed at Chalmers University will be presented. Zirconium alloys are used as fuel claddings in nuclear reactors and undergo degradation due to corrosion, hydrogen pick-up and irradiation damage. Using APT...

NOMATEN ONLINE-SEMINAR December 5: Structural and functional diversity of venom toxins interacting with GPCRs

27 November 2023

Peptide toxins from venoms have undergone a long evolutionary process allowing host defense or prey capture and making them highly selective and potent for their target. This has resulted in the emergence of a large panel of toxins from a wide diversity of species, with varied structures and multiple associated biological functions. In this way...

NOMATEN HYBRID-SEMINAR, NOVEMBER 21st, Phase-field modelling of microstructure evolution in displacive transformations

20 November 2023

Displacive transformations, like deformation twinning or martensitic transformation, are associated with microstructure evolution, which involves nucleation, propagation and annihilation of interfaces. For instance, the functional properties...

NOMATEN HYBRID-SEMINAR, NOVEMBER 2nd, Alpha-decay damage in natural apatite: buildup and recovery mechanisms for thermochronological applications

27 October 2023

Thermochronology is an earth science discipline involved in the reconstruction and timing of past geological processes. In this field, rock accessory minerals such as apatite are collected and their thermal histories (temperature vs. time) reconstructed to study landscape evolution and mountain-building processes. One of the low-temperature techniques...

NOMATEN HYBRID-SEMINAR, SEPTEMBER 26th, About the formation of vacancy clusters in fcc metals: an atomistic approach

18 September 2023

Vacancy clusters have a major contribution in multiple mechanisms as oxidation, precipitation and creep and can lead to material premature cracking. It is thus essential to have a deep understanding of the stability of these defects under a wide range of stress and temperature. Multiple factors...
