    SPEAKER: Maria Kosmidou

    Abstract: Refractory metals have extraordinary capabilities: high melting point, hardness, density, and resistance to heat and corrosion. They are also used in a broad range of applications including furnace components, electronic capacitors, military penetrators, and components in nuclear power generators. Additionally, refractory metals formed in a nanoporous structure have great radiation resistance due to increased free surfaces that can be used as shielding materials.

    In this webinar, attendees will learn:

    • How to fabricate nanoporous metals
    • How electron microscopy and state-of-the-art tomography characterize their structure and elemental distribution
    • How electron tomography can reveal the interconnected porosity of nanoporous niobium and multilayered nanoporous tantalum


    Speaker Bio:
    Maria Kosmidou received her B.S. degree in mechanical engineering and a M.Sc. degree in processes and technology of advanced materials from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece (2014). She joined Dr. Thomas John Balk's research group at the University of Kentucky as a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Chemical and Materials Engineering. She is focusing on synthesis, characterization, and analysis of mechanical properties of nanoporous materials in extreme environments (elevated temperature, high pressure, and ion irradiation).
