    Speakers:

    Hamish Fraser, The Ohio State University

    Brandon Van Leer, Thermo Fisher Scientific

     

    Event Description:

    Enhanced systems for the detection of electron signals in state-of-the-art SEMs offer multiple detectors below and "in the lens" to acquire elemental contrast BSE information, allowing researchers to investigate complex, multi-precipitate alloys. Some examples of these strategies are the use of low accelerating voltages, use of in-lens detectors, and shorter working distances. State-of-the-art SEMS not only offer in-lens detectors capable of capturing SE and BSE signals but allow the researcher to sort electrons according to their energies and/or emission angles. The enhanced characterization of these samples presented in this talk will demonstrate the superior capabilities offered by use of novel detection schemes coupled with novel imaging strategies.

     

    In this webinar, attendees will learn about:

    • How the use of new detection and imaging strategies help identify secondary phase particles in precipitation hardened Ni-based superalloys, cast as a single crystal and also as a hot isostatically pressed specimen
    • State-of-the-art SEM and detectors for low voltage SE/BSE imaging
    • Ohio State University's Center for the Accelerated Maturation of Materials microscopy methods to easily identify precipitates in novel metal alloys
    • Crucial role of precipitates in processing and performance of superalloy components

     

    Speakers Bio:


    Brandon Van Leer joined Thermo Fisher Scientific in 2004 and has held various positions including senior applications engineer, applications manager, and product marketing manager. Currently, he is a senior applications & business development manager for DualBeam and SEM instrumentation. Brandon's professional background has focused largely on materials characterization and development of electronic materials and polymers. He has more than 25 years of experience in various analytical techniques and over 19 years exploring SEM and FIB. Brandon's current research interests are applications development for plasma FIB and multi-ion source plasma FIB. Brandon received his B.S. in physics in1998 and his M.S. in electrical engineering in 2002 from Oregon State University. He is a member of MSA, MRS, and IEEE.


    Dr. Fraser graduated from the University of Birmingham, U.K. with the degrees of B.Sc. (1970) and Ph.D. (1972). He was appointed to the faculty of the University of Illinois in 1973 before moving in 1989 to the Ohio State University (OSU) as Ohio regents eminent scholar and professor. He was appointed as a senior research scientist at the United Technologies Research Center from 1979-1980. He has also been a senior von Humboldt researcher at the University of Göttingen, a senior visitor at the University of Cambridge, a visiting professor at the University of Liverpool, and he spent a sabbatical leave at the Max-Planck Institut für Werkstoffwissenscahften in Stuttgart. He has been an honorary professor of materials and technology at the University of Birmingham since 1988. In 2014, he was recognized as an honorary professor at the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. He currently serves as director of the Center for the Accelerated Maturation of Materials (CAMM) at OSU. He is a Fellow of TMS, ASM, IOM3 (UK), MSA. and MAS and has published over 450 papers in scholarly journals and given over 380 invited presentations.
