Materials physics, especially mechanical properties.
The figure on the right shows the interference pattern between an elastic wave that is incident upon a dislocation, and the wave that is scattered by said dislocation within a continuous elastic medium. The detailed understanding of this phenomenon is part of a program that aims at developing predictive quantitative models for the plastic behavior of metals and alloys.
The theoretical description of these phenomena has been developed in collaboration with F. Barra (DFI), A. Maurel (ESPCI, Paris, Francia) and V. Pagneux (LAUM, Le Mans, Francia), among others. N. Mujica (DFI) has developed Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy (RUS) experiments. A. Zuniga (DIMec) and R. Espinoza (DCM) perform High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HRTEM) as well as X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements as part of the results validation process.
