SOLUTE-DEFECT INTERACTION 2: THEORY, EXPERIMENTS AND MODELING
Held as part of the 32nd Canadian Materials Science Conference
Virtual Event | June 2-4, 2021
|In 1985 Shigeo Saimoto, Gary Purdy and Geoffrey Kidson hosted an international symposium entitled Solute-Defect Interaction: Theory and Experiment at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada of which the proceedings were published in the following year. The range of speakers and topics was exceptional and expanded the topic from the classical mind-set of linear elasticity, classical thermodynamics and random solutions.
Since that time the development of finer experimental probes, higher resolution detectors and their mainstream availability in experimental techniques like atom probe, synchrotron, electron microscopy, and the explosion of computational tools from EAM to DDD tied to a better visualization of microstructure has revealed a far more complicated landscape than envisioned. How solute atoms move, are trapped, and freed is critical to the processing and stability of modern alloys.
