Structural adhesive bonding is used in many critical applications, but the performance of such joints relies on the integrity of the bond between adhesive and substrate. Such bonding involves layers only a few atoms thick and this talk will consider how surface analysis methods are able to provide us with analytical information which will lead to optimum performance in the most demanding of applications.
Speaker: Professor John F Watts, University of Surrey
The Friday Lunch & Lecture Events have been running for more than 22 years. The Lectures are free to attend for IET members and non-members. All are welcome.
The optional two course lunch with wine currently costs £18.35 and must be paid for in advance at the counter of the Faraday Kitchen, the receipt giving admission to the lunch.
If attending lunch, arrive before 11.45 and sign-in at the Faraday Centre reception. For attending only the lecture, arrive before 13.45 and sign in for the event; this is separate to the IET Faraday Centre reception signing-in.
