DMSE Website Image Winners

Congratulation to Zhen Li, PhD student working with Professors Ernst and Heuer, and Maryam Zahiri Azar, PhD student working with Professor Heuer. Photos from their research have been selected as the newest banner images to grace the DMSE homepage.
Zhen Li research is focused on low temperature carburization of 316L stainless steel. The techniques he is helping develop significantly enhance the hardness and corrosion resistance of the materials surface. A representative publication from his work is available here. Maryam's research is focused on the growth of Alumina oxide scales. Her high resolution transmission electron microscopy work is advancing our understanding how grain boundary structures dominate scale formation. A representative publication from her work is available here.
