1st International Workshop on Laser Ultrasonics for Metallurgy

It is our pleasure to announce the first workshop on laser ultrasonics for metallurgy, to be hosted by the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver Canada from November 13-14th, 2013.

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.
