CHARACTERIZATION OF NEW MATERIALS

Innovations and Benefits

Support for industrial characterization and qualification of new materials for which physical properties are still unknown. Problem solving related to the properties of materials which could impact the reliability of complex industrial plants.

Use

Physical and mechanical characterization of metallic and ceramic materials, measurement of their physical properties (density, thermal diffusivity, thermal capacity, Young modulus, mechanical resistance) from cryogenic temperature (77 °K) up to high temperatures (2200 °K) for their applications in:
- equipment for the production of thin films,
- sensors for hostile environments (chemical reagents, cryogenics, vacuum, high temperatures) and heat exchangers for high temperatures.

Applications and ongoing Activities

Activities in material characterization have recently been carried out for FN S.p.A. and as part of an international IFERC project related to the "Broader Approach Activities".

Characteristics

CUSTOM The service can be adapted with flexibility according to different contexts and needs
