Improving the mechanical properties of 3D printed metal parts

In situ TEM helps to understand the microstructural changes in AlSi10Mg during 3D printing and post processing. This work provides the first correlative in-situ heating multiscale analysis of the powder and the additive produced AlSi10Mg alloy, allowing a unique insight into material transitions at the micro-and nanoscale.

In situ heating TEM speeds up the characterisation process for Aluminium alloys exposed to in-service conditions

There is a big opportunity for the design and development of sustainable catalysts for low-temperature NOx removal in the steel, cement and glass industries. Researchers Dr. Yong Wang et al. from Zhejiang University made a recent breakthrough using critical information obtained by In Situ TEM to design a MnOx/CeO2 nanorod (NR) catalyst with outstanding resistance to SO2 deactivation.
