Seminar: Advanced Characterisation Techniques for material Development

Event Details

Date: Tuesday, 07 April 2015
12:00pm - 1:00pm
Venue: Room 502, Advanced Engineering Building
Speaker: Dr. Kazuhiro Nogita
Event Description: 
This presentation provides an overview of how advanced characterisation approaches, such as Synchrotron X-ray radiation facilities and high voltage transmission electron microscopies, can be used in the development of materials for energy storage and electronic applications. The following three practical/experimental advanced approaches will be discussed along with their use in international collaborative projects, (1) Synchrotron X-ray diffraction (In-situ powder diffraction and In-situ plate diffraction for solder joint intermetallics, phase stability and thermal expansion characterisation) at the Australian Synchrotron, (2) Synchrotron X-ray imaging (Micro-XRF mapping and in-situ soldering for the formation and trace element distributions in the solder joint intermetallics) at SPring-8 synchrotron, and (3) Ultra-high voltage transmission electron microscopy (In-situ heating observation for hydrogen release behavior from bulk grains) at Kyushu University. This research has been conducted under an international cooperative research program between the University of Queensland and Osaka University, Kyushu University, UniMAP, Kyoto University, Imperial College London, Osaka Sango University, Nihon Superior Co., Hydrexia Pty. Ltd., Australian Synchrotron, SPring-8 synchrotron, Australian Research Council (ARC), Australian Academy of Science, and The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).
