Recommend Excellent Papers for MAS Best Paper Awards

Dear M&M Attendee: On behalf of the MAS Awards committee, let me first thank you for your participation in the upcoming annual meeting in Baltimore. Now allow me to ask for you assistance. Each year, MAS recognizes outstanding contributions by scientists at the M&M Meeting through four Outstanding Paper Awards. These are: The Castaing Award […]

Goldstein Scholar Winner – Will Nachlas

Will Nachlas, a postdoc in the Department of Earth Sciences at Syracuse University, received a Joseph Goldstein Scholar Award to pursue research into the development of trace element mineral standards. Will used the Goldstein Award to visit the Northeast National Ion Microprobe Facility (NENIMF) at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) to collect measurements using the Cameca IMS-1280 […]

Catch up with FIGMAS

Dear Microanalytical Community, In the summer of 2018, the Focused Interest Group on MicroAnalytical Standards (FIGMAS) will celebrate its 2-year anniversary. Time for us to look back at the past and onto the future! Our primary goals remain unchanged: building a strong community-based database that would list all available information possible on standards and reference materials used […]

2020 MAS Fellows and Awardees


  • MAS Webinar: Approaches to Additive Manufacturing Materials Characterization at ORNL’S MDF Part 2

    April 29, 2021  3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Please join us for our next MAS webinar at 3pm Eastern Time (US and Canada) on April 29th. Donovan Leonard will present Approaches to Additive Manufacturing Materials Characterization at ORNL’S MDF Part 2. No registration is required.

    The link to attend the April webinar is here: April webinar
    A flyer for the April event can be found here: Flyer

    Webinar description: 
    The idea behind this two part webinar by the Microanalysis Society is to open the doors of a DoE user facility, the ORNL Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF), and show others how materials characterization is being done on materials relevant to additive manufacturing. Techniques like X-ray CT, FESEM, TKD, EBSD, EDS, WDS are applied at MDF to determining solidification microstructures on the nanoscale and presence of hot tearing in larger millimeter scale builds.

    April schedule:

    Donovan N. Leonard; “Additive Manufactured Inconel 738 Turbine Blades: A needle in a haystack” (300-315pm)

    Andres Marquez-Rossy: “Xray CT at the ORNL Manufacturing Demonstration Facility” (315-330pm)

    Amy Godfrey: “Laser Powder Bed AM 316L Elemental Segregation During Rapid Solidification of Single Weld Pools” (330-345pm)

    Kevin Sisco: “AM AlCuCeX Alloys, Microstructures and 2nd Phases: No Easy Task” (345-400pm)

    We hope you can join us! If you have any questions, please send them to: masmembership@the-mas.org.
