2003 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Michael Meshii Honorary Dinner

March 2–6 · 2003 TMS ANNUAL MEETING · San Diego, California

In conjunction with the symposium: The Mike Meshii Symposium on Electron Microscopy: Its Role in Materials Research

Date: Monday, March 3, 2003

Electron microscopy has played a critical role in advancing the materials science paradigm. Direct imaging of structures at the microstructural and nanostructural levels allows structure-property relations to become better elucidated. This is particularly true for defects, either induced by the microscope as radiation damage or pre-existent as initiation sites for fatigue or phase transformations. The Mike Meshii Symposium is intended to capture the current research activities and to assess the state-of-the-art the use of electron microscopy to solve problems in materials science and engineering. We are organizing a four-session symposium on electron microscopy, specifically its role in materials research. Some examples of what might be included in the proposed sessions are: defects and radiation damage; fatigue; solid solution softening and; phase transformations. We propose to dedicate this symposium in honor of Dr. Masahiro (Mike) Meshii who will retire from Northwestern University after more than 40 years of service in September 2003. Professor Meshii has made important contributions to the field using electron microscopy, particularly, amorphization, galvanization, solid-solution softening and fatigue. The organizers are planning to publish the proceedings from this symposium in a volume available at the 2003 TMS Annual Meeting.

Dinner tickets are $60.00 and may be purchased at the TMS Conference Registration Desk. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.
