Direct Chemical Analysis of Ceramic Matrix Composites: Technical Presentation at SAMPE 2017
EAG Laboratory scientists will present a technical paper on analysis of ceramic matrix composites, at SAMPE 2017 in Seattle. As an important material in the aerospace industry, ceramic matrix composites (also known as CMCs) must have the highest level of reliability and the desired mechanical and life cycle properties. In this presentation, titled “Direct Chemical Analysis of Ceramic Matrix Composites”, EAG presents examples of some robust and sensitive materials characterization techniques that can be used to assess and control the chemical purity of these “aerospace-grade” composites.
Due to their complexity and extreme chemical inertness, ceramic matrix composites present many analytical challenges. In this presentation, EAG scientists will focus on Fast-Flow Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry (FF-GDMS), a direct solid sampling analytical technique with high sensitivity and rapid assessment of nearly all elements in the periodic table, without the need for complex sample preparation.
EAG Laboratories has years of expertise analyzing advanced materials for the aerospace industry. Our experts apply the most advanced analytical methodologies to help formulate and troubleshoot the next generation of aerospace materials. The technical paper will be presented by Rajiv Soman, Ph.D. at SAMPE 2017, the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering Conference (SAMPE). The presentation is scheduled for Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 8:30 am, in Level 2, Chelan 4 location, and is co-authored by Karol Putyera, Xinwei Wang, and Chris Iversen.
