Motivation: Ti alloys (e.g. Ti – B)provide significant improvements relative to conventionalalloysSpecific stiffnessandstrengthupto50% higherReducedgrain size enables improvedprocessingandaffordabilityWide range of applications to high temperature and radiation environments (aerospace, nuclear, manufacturing)May be used in FRIB beam dump
Examples of planned studiesIn situ microscopy studies under high cycle fatigue conditions, pre and post irradiation with NSCL SHI beamComparison with similar studies using UL/UED to probe ultra-short time mechanisms
Scanning electron microscopy images of boron-modified Ti-6Al-4V alloys; (a) as-cast, (b) cast and extruded with 0.1wt.%B, (c) cast and extruded with1wt.%B, powder-metallurgy and extruded with1wt.%B. The Ti alloys with boron addition show significantly improved stiffness, strength, and fatigue resistance due to the creation of the Ti-B phase (dark).

MotivationDiamond is very promising forparticledetectorsdue toits: radiationhardness, high carriermobility,high dielectric breakdownstrength and lowleakagecurrent. Cost is a problem.Lowcost diamond detectors with high performance would have a wide range of applications including: accelerators, spaceand military applications,medicaldiagnostics andtreatments, andto the NSCL/FRIB.Examples of planned studiesCompare performance of high cost and low cost diamond detectors using commercial materials and materials grown at MSUFraunhoferfacilityUse UL/UED to probe radiation damage mechanisms in diamond and explore possibility of healing by annealing, motivated by observations in graphite.
