There is growing interest from academia and industry in high-temperature shape memory alloys, as these represent a fascinating field both from a basic science and an application point of view.
Recent literature demonstrates that substantial progress has been made since the first conference in 2015 exclusively devoted to this topic.
In fact, some of the materials developed lately, are already very attractive in terms of microstructural stability, reversible transformation strain and price of the constituents.
The field is still rapidly evolving and the impact of new concepts such as high entropy alloys is not even clear yet.
Thus, there is again a need to bring together the leading experts in order to advance the field and to bridge the gap „From Basics to Applications“.
The 2nd Conference on High Temperature Shape Memory Alloys, which will be held from May, 15th - 18th in Kloster Irsee (Bavara, Germany), will provide a setting for all those interested in basic aspects and applications of high temperature shape memory alloys. There will be ample time to exchange ideas and discuss the latest research.
The conference is expected to shed new light on the different aspects of the processing-microstructure-property relationships, characterisation, testing, and modelling and last but not least on applications of high temperature shape memory alloys.
The following topics of the conference will be discussed:
• Constitution and Alloy Development
• Characterization and Testing
• Functional and Structural Degradation

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
