Thermal Spray Symposium in Montreal to Cover Reliability and Consistency

11.08.2008
Building on the success of their Sensors and Controls event in 2004, the ASM Thermal Spray Society (TSS) will host a two-day symposium on “Improving Reliability and Consistency in Thermal Spray.” The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Montreal on Dec. 2-3, 2008.

This symposium will explore emerging technologies, practices, and training and certification processes, and will describe their effect on improving the reliability and consistency of thermal spray coatings, which are vital for industry production.

The two-day program will feature presentations from renowned thermal spray practitioners, engineers and scientists. Sessions include Process/Coating Monitoring and Control, Materials and Surface Preparation, Coating Properties and Performance, Training and Standardization, and Modeling and Application.

Organizers include Dr. Christian Moreau, Dr. Basil Marple, and Dr. Jean-Gabriel Legoux of the National Research Council (NRC), Canada; Luc Pouliot, Tecnar Automation, Canada; Lysa Russo, SUNY at Stonybrook, US; and Warren Nelson, GE Energy, US. A facility tour of the National Research Council facilities will be offered on Dec. 3.

Special registration fees are available to members of ASM International, TSS, DVS and GTS. For details and to register, visit http://www.asminternational.org/tsrc08/. For information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Kelly Thomas at 440.338.1733, or kelly.thomas@asminternational.org.

TSS is an Affiliate Society of ASM International, The Materials Information Society. Founded in 1994, the ASM Thermal Spray Society has grown to a membership of approximately 1,500 individuals around the globe representing over 500 leading companies, research institutions and universities. We are committed in promoting thermal spray technology and serving our members to create value for them individually and for the organizations they represent.

Recognized globally for research and innovation, the National Research Council (NRC) is a leader in the development of an innovative, knowledge-based economy for Canada through science and technology. The NRC’s Industrial Materials Institute (NRC-IMI), one of the twenty NRC institutes, is a research and development centre focused on materials, their formulation and forming, as well as the control of their processes. NRC-IMI works primarily in the metallurgy, polymer, aerospace, automotive and biomedical sectors. It helps Canadian companies meet the risks of the new economy by providing them competitive advantages and the required leverage to grasp opportunities.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
