REGISTER NOW for the free Lifetime and Degradation Science (L&DS) Workshop
on November 14 at Case Western Reserve University.

 
Sunday's edition of the Cleveland Plain Dealer featured an article about a key platform for work in Lifetime & Degradation Science: the newly opened SDLE Center on the CWRU campus. Quoting Dr. Roger French, SDLE Center Director, professor of materials science, and 25-year veteran researcher for DuPont:
 

"They (materials and products) are a large investment. And if you can't be comfortable with how long they will last, you will have a major hesitation about whether you should buy it."

 

"Energy technology needs to last 40 to 60 years," said French. "The question comes down to a technology's lifetime performance, not on its initial performance...And that is what makes this a scientific challenge -- how do we approach a question that is 50 years long and have confidence that we can figure out solid answers? That is the focus of what we are working on."


Read the full article here, and learn more and participate in the conversation by attending the upcoming L&DS Workshop on November 14. Registration is still open!
