Held March 25-26 at the Doubletree Hotel in Anaheim, Calif., the “Heat Treating of Light Alloys” program will cover new techniques in processing, microstructure development, resultant properties and performance.
“Our goal is to provide an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in heat treating, which has such a strong influence on reducing weight, improving performance and providing greater cost-effectiveness in engineered systems,” said organizer Roger Jones, Solar Atmospheres, Souderton, Pa.
The program will begin with “A Historical Perspective on Light Metals Heat Treatment” provided by Joe Benedyk of Light Metal Age. Technical presentations by heat treating experts will follow.
The Wednesday morning program features “Care and Maintenance of Polymer Quenchants for Heat Treating Aluminum” by Scott Mackenzie, Houghton International; “Cycle Time Reduction in the Heat Treatment of Cast Aluminum Alloys by Prof. Richard Sisson, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, “Induction Heat Treating of Light Metals” by Rob Goldstein, Fluxtrol.
The Wednesday afternoon program features “Vacuum Processing of Titanium for Aerospace Applications” by Bob Hill, Solar Atmospheres; “Advanced Induction Heat Treating Technologies for Light Metals” by Valery Rudnev, Inductoheat.
A roundtable discussion and networking reception will conclude the first day’s technical program. “We want our participants to take advantage of every opportunity to talk about the problems and opportunities that we as heat treaters confront every day,” Jones said.
The Thursday morning program will include “Heat Treating and Characteristics of Titanium 10-2-3” by Ben Irani, Bodycote, and “Salt Bath Heat Treating of Aluminum Aerospace Components” by Geoff Monti, Bodycote.
A one-day educational seminar on Heat Treating for the Non-Heat Treater will be presented by Scott Mackenzie on March 24, immediately prior to the start of the Heat Treating of Light Alloys technical program.

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
