Atomistics of natural and manufactured materials

ÉTS receives $400 000 to perform 3D tomographic mapping of the atomic structure and composition of materials

Tuesday, March 9, 2021

The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Government of Quebec are co-funding this projet with a total value of $8.3 million. Today, we present the project led by Professor Mohammad Jahazi.

The "Atomistics of natural and manufactured materials" project will propose innovative strategies to create new materials and alloys – steels, superalloys or aluminum alloys – that will solve scientific and technological challenges in many sectors, such as manufacturing, transportation, energy, quantum engineering and integrated photonics, to name a few.

To achieve this, researchers will set up a unique infrastructure that will allow them to perform 3D tomographic mapping of the atomic structure and composition of these materials. With this infrastructure, they will be able to study the atomic composition of new materials in order to provide them with new properties or improve existing ones.

In addition to the ÉTS, several other partners will collaborate on this project, which will be led by Polytechnique Montréal, including the Université de Montréal, the Université de Sherbrooke and McGill University. At the ÉTS, Professor Mohammad Jahazi of the Department of Mechanical Engineering will be working on this project.

The CFI and the Government of Quebec jointly contributed $400,000 to the ÉTS for this project, the total value of which is $8.3 million.
