Material Science and Technology Conference

An Actinide and Lanthanide Materials Symposium will be re-established at the 2015 Material Science & Technology Conference. MS&T as a conference addresses a broad range of materials issues, ranging from manufacturing to applications, basic research and failure analysis in a broad range of materials. The Actinide and Lanthanide Materials Symposium has been dormant for over a decade, and we are looking forward to holding it approximately every 2 years moving forward. The symposium is intended to host a wide variety of topic in actinides and lanthanides, ranging from materials science studies, to solid-state physics, to manufacturing studies and processes. The symposium scope is below:

Actinide and Lanthanide materials display broad and varied behaviors driven by self-irradiation, unusual electronic structures, allotropic phase transformations, challenges in processing, reactivity and many other factors. This symposium seeks to understand the fundamental and applied materials science of Actinide and Lanthanide metals, alloys and compounds from experimental and computational studies of structure, transformations, processing, properties, and applications. Examples include:

  • Phase allotropy, thermodynamics and kinetics in plutonium and it alloys and compounds.
  • Deformation mechanisms in low-symmetry crystals of plutonium, uranium and their alloys.
  • Self-irradiation driven property or phase stability changes in aging nuclear materials.
  • Phase stability in Cerium and its alloys.
  • Processing and manufacturing studies of Actinide and Lanthanide materials.
  • Material compatibility and reaction studies in less-common materials.

The abstract deadline has been extended to the 31st of March. Please contact Adam Farrow, Symposium Organizer at afarrow AT lanl.gov with any questions.
