The Royal Microscopical Society - Applied Microscopy Conference to Review Modern Metallographic Techniques

Henry Clifton Sorby was a pioneer in the application of microscopy techniques to the study of geological and metallic materials, a past president of the Royal Microscopical Society, and a founder of the University of Sheffield.

In 1863, Sorby was the first to use etching with acid to study the microstructure of iron and steel. Using this technique, he discovered that a small but precise quantity of carbon gave steel its strength. There have been remarkable advances in microscopy since that time and also since the 1963 Sheffield Sorby conference, which reviewed the then state-of-the art in metallography.

This conference will review modern techniques to characterise materials and minerals, and show how the understanding gained has led to major steps in materials developments.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Harry Bhadeshia (Cambridge)
  • Professor Robert Edyvean (Sheffield)
  • Dr Bev Hutchison (KIMAB)
  • Professor Mark Rainforth (Sheffield)
  • Professor George Thompson (Manchester)
  • Professor Rachel Thomson (Loughborough)
  • Dr Noel Worley (British Gypsum)

The abstract deadline for oral and poster contributions is 6pm, Friday 19th July. Early bird registration fees are available until then.
