MEMS Research Makes Cover of MRS Bulletin

MEMS Professor Jorg Wiezorek and his group’s work is featured on the front cover of the November issue of the MRS Bulletin. The issue covers the developments in the field of processing metallic materials and includes Wiezorek’s article highlighting the in-situ TEM work Pitt does in collaboration with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)

The feature article is titled Imaging Transient Solidification Behavior and Wiezorek co-authored the work with Dr. Joseph McKeown, lead of the Metallurgy and Advanced Microscopy Group at LLNL, and Dr. Amy Clarke who is an associate professor in the George S. Ansell Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines.  

Wiezorek’s research involves state-of-the-art in-situ experiments that are performed with fast electrons, which allow the study of the dynamic processes of crystal growth and microstructure evolution under extreme conditions driven far from equilibrium. The research produces quantitative measurements and mechanistic insights that are uniquely suitable for comparison with and validation of computational modeling and advance the science and theory of the liquid-to-solid phase transformations in metallic materials.
