Studies of calcination processes by Ambient Pressure XPS

Permascand has, together with Uppsala Synchrotronix, received funding from the Swedish Innovation Agency for operando studies of the formation of catalytic coatings on electrodes for electrochemical processing. We will use Ambient Pressure XPS to follow the formation process under realistic conditions in real-time. Lars-Åke Näslund is the principal investigator and Susanne Holmin from Permascand is the project manager. Read more here.

Participating in the event World Class Materials Innovation

Robert Moberg from Uppsala Synchrotronix will participate in the panel discussion of World Class Materials Innovation on 1 July 10.00 – 11..00 am. The topic of the event is “how to create capacity to support businesses to leverage from the investments in infrastructure”. The event is arranged by Materials Business Center and Packbridge.

Towards real-time probing of precipitates in hot-rolling processes under realistic conditions

SSAB, Lund University (Prof. Stephen Hall), Swerim, and Uppsala Synchrotronix have received funding from the Swedish Innovation Agency for combined SAXS and WAXS studies of the precipitation kinetics during hot-rolling of microalloyed steels, aiming at real-time in-situ experiments. The experiments will be carried out at Petra-3. Linda Bäcke from SSAB is the project manager. Read more here.

3D texture analysis for optimization of rolled aluminium

Lund University (the group of Prof. Stephen Hall), Gränges Sweden, and Uppsala Synchrotronix have received funding from the Swedish Innovation Agency to facilitate a wide-spread industrial usage of combined tomography and 3DXRD investigations by developing convenient means for co-visualization and interpretation of the resulting huge 3D data sets. The developed data analysis methods will be applied on existing tomography/3DXRD data of brazing phenomena in rolled aluminium. Read more here.
