Our focus is on novel in-situ experimental cells for in-process measurements, allowing time-resolved synchrotron and neutron observation of structure, chemistry and phase evolution across the length scales from nano to mm during powder-based manufacturing.

This will enable a new understanding of how powder compositions and processing routes first affect the phases formed in the powder, and then how these can be tailored to optimise their processing. We aim to develop in-process production monitoring and metrology techniques to provide real-time feedback on the new powder manufacturing methods being developed and innovated within MAPP.
