• Summer School on Experimental Nano- and Micromechanics, Düsseldorf, September 2017

    A Summer School on Experimental Nano- and Micromechanics, will be held from 11th to 15th of September 2017 at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, Düsseldorf (Germany).  The school is organized by Christoph Kirchlechner (MPIE, Düsseldorf) and Benoit Merle (FAU, Erlangen).

    The school aims at providing a comprehensive overview on experimental nano- and micromechanical testing methods. Focus thereby is put on material properties which we can reliably extract from in situ micromechanical experiments. The school will deal with nanoindentation, methods to explore the small-scale plastic and fracture properties of materials and interfaces, frequently used characterization techniques with in situ capabilities and, finally, simulation techniques.

    Invited speakers:

    -          Nanoindentation and HT-Nanoindentation: Jeffrey Wheeler (ETH Zürich)

    -          Plasticity: Erica Lilleodden (HZG Geesthacht) and Daniel Kiener (University of Leoben)

    -          Fracture: David Armstrong (Oxford University) and Goran Zagar (EPFL Lausanne)

    -          Thin Films: Ruth Schwaiger (KIT Karlsruhe)

    -          In situ Characterization:  Frédéric Mompiou (CNRS Toulouse) and Stefan Zaefferer (MPIE Düsseldorf)

    -          Simulation Techniques at the Mesoscale: Marc Fivel (CNRS Grenoble)

    Hands-on exercises in state-of-the art laboratories will treat practical aspects of the experimental work, including nanoindentation, EBSD, microfracture mechanics, thin film mechanics.

    Registration is limited to 40 participants. We advise young scientists interested in attending the school to send their application as soon as possible to micromech2017@mpie.de. The participation fee is 250€ and includes a BBQ party and 3 lunches, as well as all drinks during the school.
