Content of job information

[Explanation of institution (recruitment background, institution details, explanation of project, etc.)]
This position has been allocated in a national research project (Kakenhi) in which an adopted staff is expected to promote research projects with permanent staffs and graduate students in Kyushu University.

[Job details (duties, subject responsible for, etc.)]
Synchrotron X-ray tomography is a relatively new technique in the materials science that were realized in the 21st century. It has been utilized for the various in-situ observations (4D) of material behavior such as deformation and fracture as well as the 3D observation of microstructures in materials interior. This enables 4D observation with a high resolution level at which microstructural features are observable for relatively bulky specimens in aluminum and steels. In this study, world highest resolution/contrast available in the Japanese synchrotron radiation facility, SPring-8. Typical spatial resolution available in synchrotron radiation facilities had been long limited to 1 micron or so until a few years ago, which limits observable phenomena to rather mesoscopic ones. In this project, we will apply the recently improved technique. We will also use a 3D XRD set-up at the same time with the X-ray imaging, by which transformation behavior is observed at the same time in situ. This advanced and multi-modal analyses is expected to reveal complex damage control due to deformation induced transformation.
