X-ray and neutron methods for the material analysis of AM alloys
Target oriented material development has to be based on a profound understanding of process-inherent mechanisms. This project aims on in-situ observation of the material consolidation process during additive manufacturing.
This includes particular phase transformations and the nucleation and growth of precipitates. The observation of these phenomena is a big challenge due to their high temporal dynamics. New experimental environments allow the observation of the formation of the microstructure of a material under AM conditions. Access to this accelerator based experimental environment allows the competence anchor DESY-FAU DHW, a cooperation between FAU and the Helmholtz centers DESY and DHW.
