Fundamental kunskap på nanometer-till-atomär nivå av deformationsmekanismerna i nitridnanokompositer
|Koordinator||Linköpings universitet - Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi|
|Bidrag från Vinnova||2 156 000 kronor|
|Projektets löptid||januari 2012 - december 2018|
Syfte och mål
The aim is to develop post characterization methods for the nanocomposites relevant to the cutting tools operation environment i.e., elevated temperatures and pressures. A dedicated time will be spent to learn micropillar structuring and the indentation specially developed to enable micropillar compression testing over a wide range of temperatures. The parallel focus is FIB tomography of indentation cracks and atom probe tomography (APT) of phase segregation/phase transformation.
Förväntade effekter och resultat
In long term, the initiative seek to gain excellence in technology innovation for studying the deformation physics in nanocomposites coatings and thereby contributing in developing next generation metal cutting tools. the successful completion will assure advancement in Dr. Naureen Ghafoor´s academic career and outcome will have direct utilization in industry. The work in the outlined framework supposed to deliver several high impact scientific publications, talks and two PhD theses.
Planerat upplägg och genomförande
The LiU personal will obtain operating skills of complex equipments and testing the entirely new class of materials at U:C and Uds. The accessibility of the complimentary state-of-the- art equipments and the best possible vision of the experts at the three partner institutes is the key for the proposed setup which will sequentially established in three years. The scientific and practical aspects of the project have already been examined with the partner institutes and will be initiated by spring 2012.
