The popular Science colloquium series, co-organised by MAX IV Laboratory & ESS, will continue in 2021, and in webcast format for now, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will provide information on this page about upcoming talks and how you can attend.
The aim of these colloquia is to bring the science made possible by neutrons and synchrotron radiation into focus, and to bring people at ESS and MAX IV and the local science community together. They are held one Wednesday afternoon per month, and will be web-based for now.
Regine Willumeit-Römer: Biodegradable magnesium implants: ready to use or fake news?
Magnesium and its alloys are a new class of loa-bearing metal implants because they degrade under physiological conditions. This amazing property offers significant advantages over classical, non-degrading implants which have to be removed upon the completion of the healing process. However, it is not easy to deal with Magnesium-based implant materials because the degradation in a biological environment is extremely complicated. This presentation will outline how close the interplay is between microstructure, material degradation and biological response and how nicely in situ synchrotron experiments can contribute to unravel the magic of magnesium.
