Thomas Cool studies the coarsening of dendritic solid liquid mixtures in Pb – Sn. The samples will be analyzed using mechanical serial sectioning. The data will be fit into a phase field modeling code and then compared with the (hopefully) experimental data from samples processed on ISS. This will hopefully allow for validation of the models used along with increasing understanding of the coarsening mechanisms for dendrites.
