How Electron and X-ray Microscopy Enable Materials Discovery and Development

Live Event: Wednesday, September 9, 2020

View Webinar
This webinar is free for members and non-members.

See what’s happening now in materials discovery and development! Join a discussion with experts from ZEISS Microscopy and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to understand the latest advances in electron and x-ray microscopy.

Will Harris, ZEISS Microscopy, will present the challenges of developing new materials, and will focus on microscopy as a cornerstone characterization method and introduce several techniques that, when used in conjunction, can help researchers understand material problems that span length scales, dimensions, and modalities. Ryan Dehoff, ORNL, will present case studies where these and similar approaches are being put into action, with the overarching theme of addressing challenges related to additive manufactured parts. Learn how your organization can coordinate imaging techniques and data processing to better understand the processing-structure-property connections that exist in these materials.

What You Will Experience

  • Tour the latest technology innovations in microscopy that support research in engineering materials
  • See how researchers at ORNL's Manufacturing Demonstration Facility are applying some of the latest microscopy techniques to address challenging problems related to additive manufacturing

About the Instructors

Will Harris

ZEISS Microscopy

Will Harris is a product marketing manager at ZEISS Microscopy focusing on electron, ion, and x-ray based imaging systems for the materials science and engineering research markets. In his role, Harris coordinates closely with the customer base in North America to find ways for the latest microscopy innovations and methods to meet their diverse materials characterization challenges. He has held past roles at ZEISS in marketing and sales at the global level and has also spent time driving business development in the ultrafast laser market. Harris received both his B.S. and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Connecticut, where his graduate dissertation centered around the use of synchrotron-based x-ray microscopy to develop a better understanding of microstructural effects and the role of spatial/compositional heterogeneity in energy materials.

Ryan Dehoff

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Ryan Dehoff was the previous Group Leader of the Deposition Science and Technology Group for Oak Ridge National Laboratory and has stepped away to be the manufacturing lead for the Transformational Challenge Reactor Program. Dehoff facilitates the development of additive manufacturing of components, utilizing various techniques including electron beam melting, laser metal deposition, directed energy deposition among others. He joined ORNL in 2009 after completing his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University.
