Several members of the Krogstad group as well as many collaborators will be heading to San Diego soon for the Annual TMS meeting. Prof. Krogstad will be presenting at the Young Professionals Tutorial Luncheon (SDCC 6A) on Tuesday at noon. You have to register for lunch but you can listen to the talks for free! […]
We’re excited for the upcoming graduate visit weekends for MatSE @ Illinois. The Krogstad group will be looking for new students next fall on a variety of potential projects, but especially to join our effort to understand intrinsic toughening mechanisms in polycrystalline ceramics (Deformation mechanisms in high performance ceramics)
Prof. Krogstad was selected as one of two recipients of the TMS Early Career Faculty Fellow Award. She will be recognized at the Annual TMS Meeting in San Diego, CA in February 2020–speaking at the Young Professionals Tutorial Luncheon (2/25, 12-1:30 SDCC 6A) and at the AIME/TMS awards banquet Wednesday evening (2/26). For more details […]
We are currently looking for a couple of new graduate students to take on one of several new projects in the group, all of which are connected to carbon neutral energy applications or sustainable manufacturing. Specifically, we have openings available for the following projects: Diffusion in large thermal gradients for nuclear power applications — you […]
Megan‘s most recent paper exploring the phase evolution in sputter deposited Hanyes 242 through in situ TEM observations is now available online! https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scriptamat.2019.07.028 Her work clarifies our hypothesis in her first paper, clearly demonstrating that the equilibrium phase with the HCP-like DOa structure precipitates via continuous ordering much like the metastable phases (e.g. Ni2(Mo,Cr) with […]
A new series of articles in JOM (The Member Journal of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society) highlights the diversity success and challenges in the field of materials science and engineering. Our work on engineering outreach is one of the highlighted articles. You can find all of the open access articles here: Perspectives on Diversity […]
Four years of research and interdisciplinary team facilitated through the BP-ICAM has lead to our most recent publication in ACS Energy & Fuels (DOI: 10.1021/acs.energyfuels.9b00386). This paper summarizes the impact of surface passivation on mitigating the deposition of S-containing asphaltenes. The lead author, Pralav Shetty, recently graduated, but he spent several years working with students in […]
Eric Lang, a graduate student in Jean Paul Allain’s research group in NPRE, is the lead author on a new publication entitled “Deciphering the role of second phase precipitates on early-stage surface morphology development of dispersion-strengthened W alloys under low energy He irradiation.” This effort was facilitated through collaboration with our group to process the […]
Charles Smith and Nathan Madden will be presenting on their work at the International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites (ICACC) next week in Daytona Beach. Both will be presenting on Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Prof. Krogstad will also be presenting on some of Nathan’s work on irradiated ceramics.
Pralav successfully defended his dissertation entitled, “Effect of roughness, microstructure, and chemistry on the environmental durability of structural alloys,” today! He’s put in a lot of hard work over the last 4.5 years and it showed today. Congratulations!
