Resublimation of Mg during powder metallurgical processing.

The Department of Materials Design and Characterisation is concerned with developing alloys based on magnesium and titanium, processing these alloys into prototype implants as well as determining their properties. The department is particularly interested in developing corrosion research methods under physiological conditions and in the application of powder metallurgy production techniques.
