Atom Probe Group

Category: Atom Probe Microscopy
Managed by: Department of Materials, University of Oxford
Description: The group is currently active in all aspects of atom probe research, including: establishing new materials applications, instrumentation and the development of 3D reconstruction and data analysis techniques. Their work covers a broad spectrum of research projects, including: •materials for nuclear fusion - such as ODS steels and tungsten alloys •materials for nuclear fission - such as Zr alloys, Fe-Cr alloys and precipitation in RPV steels •semiconducting materials - with application to photovoltaics and quantum computing •advanced engineering materials - Ni/Co-based superalloys, Ti alloys and steels for aerospace applications •high-efficiency catalysts - including characterisation of catalyst nanoparticles •materials subject to corrosive and environmental degradation - such as stress corrosion cracking, high temperature oxidation and hydrogen embrittlement •advanced APT and FIM techniques - including 3D FIM and development of an in-situ environmental cell for the LEAP •computational methods for APT and reconstruction
