Announcing a special workshop to be held at LBL, Berkeley, CA, Aug 1-3, 2007

Dear Colleagues:

You are cordially invited to attend a special Workshop on In Situ Methods in Nanomechanics, which will be held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on August 1-3, 2007. This workshop aims to bring together researchers with an interest in combining nanomechanical (or closely related nanotribological) testing with real-time monitoring techniques such as transmission or scanning electron microscopy, x- ray diffraction, chemical spectroscopy, electrical current measurement, acoustic emission detection, etc. These emerging hybrid methods enable the building of direct relationships between, for example, microstructure evolution and distinct characteristics of force vs. displacement, or better yet, stress vs. strain curves. Such methods promise to improve our understanding of the origins of mechanical properties, and of how mechanical and other properties are coupled.

To view the Call for Abstracts and other important details about the workshop, please see the attached documents.

Confirmed Invited Speakers: William Nix (Stanford University) • Helena Van Swygenhoven-Moens (Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland) • Jodie Bradby (Australian National University) • John Balk (University of Kentucky) • Thomas LaGrange (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) • Daryl Chrzan (University of California, Berkeley)
