Joint Research Activity in ESTEEM3 : Submission of four deliverables
In January 2023, four deliverables have been submitted to the European Commission regarding Joint Research Activities in ESTEEM3. Within the project, Joint Research Activities (JRA) focus on the development of the advanced TEM methods required for the solution of key problems in materials and nanoscience.
The deliverables were submitted for JRA2 (TEM Solutions for Materials Problems). These four scientific deliverables were submitted in WP 7 – (D7.3 Third Report on TEM methods applied to ICT material); WP 8 – (D8.3 First report on TEM methods applied to materials for energy); WP 9 – (D9.3 Second report on TEM methods applied to materials for health); WP 10 – (D10.3 Third report on TEM methods applied to materials for transport).
These four scientific work packages are parallel on different applications, so the goal is to make scientific advances on TEM methods for materials in ICT, energy, health and transport.
The published deliverables are the following:
This deliverable is focusing on the major discoveries made in the last two-year time span within work package 7. The report investigates the applicability of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) for this purpose by splitting its activities into three tasks.
Deliverable D8.3 belongs to WP8 Materials for Energy. In this work package four different task have been included. The deliverable describes the progress carried out in every task.
This report summarises projects performed in STU, ANT and Nano within WP9. Five different projects from ANT and two from STU have been discussed.
This deliverable aims to describe the implementation of the sample preparation methods for various "difficult" materials such as Ni-based superalloys, advanced high-strength steels (AHSS), Ti, Al and Mg-based alloys and fibre-reinforced composite materials using different techniques for preparing thin artefact-free TEM lamellae.
These deliverables have the draft status since the approval from the European Commission is pending. The next deliverables will be submitted at the end of April.
