PS-12 - Materials in extreme conditions (nuclear, chemical, planetary..)
We invite contributions on the application of microscopy and imaging techniques to the study of materials for extreme conditions. This session is open to studies including those relevant to high temperature, high pressure, (electro)chemical/corrosive, irradiative and non-standard mechanical environments. Technical contributions are also welcome encompassing sample preparation and experimental setups that enable the study of materials under such conditions. We aim to explore how far the boundaries of microscopy and imaging can be pushed to address the scientific questions which arise when materials are exposed to harsh environments and how such studies can lead to impact in real world applications.
