Advances in characterization of microstructure and texture

The symposium on the ‘Advances in characterization of microstructure and texture’ is to promote and strengthen the fundamental understanding of the basic processes that govern the evolution of microstructure, texture and its relation to the properties of polycrystalline materials. Nonetheless, it is aimed to develop links between basic research on model materials and applied research on engineering materials of technical importance. This symposium will provide a forum to present and discuss the recent progresses in the research on microstructure, texture and related anisotropy of mechanical and functional properties of all polycrystalline materials including natural materials like rocks. Particular attention will be given to recent advances in microstructure and texture measurement and analysis as well as modeling for all kinds of processes like solidification, plastic deformation, recrystallization and grain growth, phase transformations, thin film deposition, etc. This symposium will be of great interest to materials scientists, geoscientists and engineers from many different areas.

Symposium Theme

  • Microstructure and/or texture evolution during solidification, phase transformation, plastic deformation, recovery and grain growth recrystallization
  • Effect of microstructure and/or texture on the mechanical and functional properties of materials
  • Microstructure and/or texture in natural crystalline formations (rocks)
  • Grain boundary engineering
  • Mathematical, numerical and statistical methods of texture analysis
  • Insight into microstructure and texture through new developments, new experimental methods and future trends
  • Advance in scanning and transmission electron microscopy techniques
  • Advanced analytical and spectroscopic techniques for study of surfaces and interfaces
  • X-Ray Diffraction Techniques for analysis of stress, texture, and defects
  • Techniques for evaluation of electrical, thermal, optical, and magnetic properties
