Workshop on Laser Ultrasonics for Metallurgy

November 13-14, 2013 – AMPEL room 311

Laser ultrasonics for metallurgy (LUMet) is a novel Canadian technology that was developed at NRC’s Industrial Materials Institute (IMI) Boucherville to the stage of a commercial sensor. The first commercial LUMet system was installed as an attachment to the Gleeble 3500 thermo-mechanical simulator in 2012 in UBC’s Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering (CMPE). LUMet offers exciting opportunities to further exploit the capabilities of this unique sensing technique and to extend the range of its applicability in metallurgy. The scope of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussing the state-of-the-art of the LUMet technology and to promote its further use in the metallurgical community.

The invited speakers are Professor Bevis Hutchinson from Sweden, Dr. Bing Tie from France and Dr. Andre Moreau from Quebec, Canada. They are three renowned scientists in the field of laser ultrasonics and modelisation of ultrasound propagation in metals.
