    • AutomAl 6000: Semi-automatic structural labelling of HAADF-STEM images of precipitates in Al–Mg–Si(–Cu) alloys 

      Tvedt, Haakon; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Thronsen, Elisabeth; Hell, Christoph Martin; Andersen, Sigmund Jarle; Holmestad, Randi (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      When the Al–Mg–Si(–Cu) alloy system is subjected to age hardening, different types of precipitates nucleate depending on the composition and thermomechanical treatment. The main hardening precipitates extend as needles, ...
    • Copper enrichment on aluminium surfaces after electropolishing and its effect on electron imaging and diffraction 

      Wenner, Sigurd; Lervik, Adrian; Thronsen, Elisabeth; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Kubowicz, Stephan; Holmestad, Randi (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Electropolishing is the most common method of preparing samples of aluminium alloys for scanning and transmission electron microscopy, as it yields a good surface quality and large flat, electron-transparent areas. Like ...
    • Effect of cyclic ageing on the early-stage clustering in Al–Zn-Mg(-Cu) alloys 

      Shah, Sohail; Thronsen, Elisabeth; Hatzoglou, Constantinos; Wenner, Sigurd; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Holmestad, Randi; Holmedal, Bjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      The cyclic application of mechanical stress to aluminum alloys at room temperature, referred to as cyclic ageing, continuously injects vacancies, enabling dynamic precipitation of a fine distribution of solute clusters. ...
    • The effect of heavy deformation on the precipitation in an Al-1.3Cu-1.0Mg-0.4Si wt.% alloy 

      Thronsen, Elisabeth; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Sunde, Jonas Kristoffer; Minakuchi, Kazuhiro; Katsumi, Tetsuya; Erga, Iven; Andersen, Sigmund Jarle; Friis, Jesper; Marthinsen, Knut; Matsuda, Kenji; Holmestad, Randi (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      This work has investigated the effect of the combination of natural ageing and 80% pre-deformation after solution heat treatment on precipitation during subsequent artificial ageing in an Al-1.3Cu-1.0Mg-0.4Si wt.% alloy. ...
    • The Effect of Small Additions of Fe and Heavy Deformation on the Precipitation in an Al–1.1Mg–0.5Cu–0.3Si At. Pct Alloy 

      Thronsen, Elisabeth; Mørkeseth, Hanne; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Minakuchi, Kazuhiro; Katsumi, Tetsuya; Marthinsen, Knut; Matsuda, Kenji; Holmestad, Randi (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      The effect of 0.03 and 0.08 at. pct Fe additions on the formation of secondary phases in an Al–1.1Mg–0.5Cu–0.3Si at. pct alloy was investigated. Following solution heat treatment and natural aging, the alloys were analyzed ...
