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

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
