Some people currently or recently involved in Al-Sc related research
This listing is based partly on personal contacts and partly on web-pages I have come across while browsing the
Department of Materials Technology
at NTNU (The Norwegian University of Science and Technology)
Faculty who have been involved in research with Sc-containing Al alloys:Prof. Em. Nils Ryum was the first one to initiate this research at NTNU, in the early 1990's
Prof. Øystein Grong has looked on the effect of Sc for grain refinement during welding.
Prof. Knut Marthinsen has looked at Sc in combination with other elements as a dispersoid former.
Prof. Hans Jørgen Roven has looked at severe plastic deformation of Sc-containing Al alloys.

The research groups of
Prof. David N. Seidman
Prof. David Dunand
have done extensive research on Al-Sc alloys over the past few years.
Group members working with Al-Sc:
Marsha van Dalen and
Past group members working with Al-Sc:
Dr. Christian Fuller and
Dr. Emmanuelle Marquis
Mark Asta and
(Sandia National Laboratories) have been doing
Theoretical calculations on the Al-Sc system
The Light Alloy Processing Research Group
at UMIST, Manchester, UK, has several ongoing projects on Sc-containing alloys.

and Fionnuala Costello.
Online project list.
Sc-related projects are
no. 102 and
Peter Mayr and co-workers at the Spray Forming Research Center
at the Bremen University, Germany, are currently experimenting with
Spray-forming of Sc-containing Al-Cu alloys.
Janusz Król and co-workers at the Laboratory of X-ray Diffraction at
The Aleksander Krupkowski Institute of Metallurgy and Materials Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences
are investgating Sc-containing Al-alloys.
John Vetrano at the
Material Interfaces and Characterisation Group of Pacific Northwest Laboratory and his co-workers have conducted
several investigations on Al-Mg-Sc and Al-Mg-Mn-Sc alloys over the last few years.
