1st Annual Technological Innovations in Metals Engineering conference in Haifa, Israel Makes Impactful Debut

More than 200 people from across the world attended the first Technological Innovations in Metals Engineering conference in Haifa, Israel, co-organized by Youngstown State University and Technion, the Israel Institute of Technology.

The two-day conference in late May, sponsored by the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society and the European Union Cooperation in Science and Technology program, focused on additive manufacturing, metals processing, alloys, critical materials and applications and attracted participants from the European Union, China, New Zealand, South Africa and the U.S.

Dan Schectman, 2011 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, was chairman and a keynote speaker.

The next conference is set for 2020 at YSU.

On April 8, 1982, Shechtman was studying an alloy containing 86 percent aluminum atoms and 14 percent manganese atoms, which Boettinger lab member Frank Biancaniello had produced using melt spinning. Shechtman was looking at the arrangements that electrons ended up in after traveling through the material, known as their diffraction patterns.

Shechtman recorded in his lab notebook the symmetries he found in the diffraction patterns. Next to his note for sample number 1725, he wrote “(10 fold ???).”
