Metal processing: machining, joining, printing and related processes studied with synchrotron light

Purpose and scope:

The high-energy, coherent X-rays generated by MAX IV, make it possible to study metals with a wide range of methods. In particular, MAX IV allows in situ studies of machining, joining, printing and related processes. Metals are of great industrial significance, especially for Sweden. This session will show examples of both fundamental and applied research of industrially relevant metal processes. The practical aspects of industrial research at synchrotrons will also be discussed.
