RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
2006-2007
Post-Doctoral position “MRTN-CT-2003-504692”: Ductilisation of Bulk
Metallic Glasses by Length-scale Control in BMGs Composites and Applications
Recent breakthroughs in Materials Engineering have generated complex Zr, Ti, Cu, Fe, Ni,
La, Pd and Mg-based alloys that retain a glassy state in bulk form (Bulk Metallic Glasses or
BMGs) via conventional ingot casting.
Due to their 2% elastic strain range (as compared to 0.2% for crystalline materials) BMGs
currently have the best known values for the performance index σ2/E and good values of the
index σ2/ρE (where σ, ρ and E are respectively the yield strength, mass density and Young’s
modulus). While they exhibit a very high elastic limit of 2% strain which is of major interest
for many structural applications, they show insignificant macroscopic room-temperature
plasticity and fail by fracture when solicited beyond elastic limit.
The major objective of the proposed research programme is to develop ductile hign-strength
bulk metallic glass based composites showing of the order of 10% plastic deformation at
room temperatures. This will be achieved by the introduction of selected dispersions of a
second phase of crystalline particles in the BMG matrix.
In addition to the development and testing of these different types of BMG-based composites,
a major objective is to generate fundamental understanding of the role of length scales
(micro-nano), internal stresses (thermo-mechanical), the distribution of the BMG and the
second phase dispersion to the mechanical properties and the nature of interfaces in the
determination of the conditions of ductilisation with significant plastic deformation.
2005-2006
Post-Doctoral position: Realization and characterization of ion-sensible
membrane made from chalcogenide glass. This work is part of an industrial project where
the objective is the settling of an analytical device allowing the continuous detection of
toxic elements in waters of polluted sites.
The presence of solid wastes in open environments, e. g. in mining or industrial sites, can be
at the origin of sources of pollution. A way to control the level of toxicity of the waters and to
prevent in case of an anomalous increase in the content of toxic species is to proceed to a
continuous in situ analysis of the underground waters surrounding the polluted site. However
such a control is not easy to achieve: the usual ways of water analysis such as Inductive
Coupled Plasma are very expensive and require withdrawal from the site. The best way
would be to develop an autonomous analytical system that could be placed in polluted waters
and could continuously measure the main toxic species. Chalcogenide glasses have been
shown to be very sensitive and selective to heavy ions in solution. They can be used to
develop chemical sensors that have been tested in laboratory and natural waters. However
depending upon the pollution, the membranes might not be able to work properly, either
because of saturation due to a too large amount of toxic species or else because of an
insufficient limit of detection when the water reaches the level of pollutants required by the
law. For example the environmental norm for the concentration in cadmium is [Cd2+] = 5 ppb
while the chalcogenide sensors have a detection limit close to 100ppb. A pre-conditioning
module might be developed based upon Ion-Exchange Membranes and the electro-dialysis
process.
2004 PhD: Study of foam glass elaborated from waste Cathode-Ray Tube (CRT) lead
oxide containing glasses: elaboration, physical and chemical characterizations and
applications
This work is devoted to search of possible applications for waste Cathode-Ray Tube glasses.
Heavy elements contained in the glasses are required be buried land field by producers and
recyclers of CRT’s.
Foam glass seems to be the most promising for waste CRT glasses recycling. The foam glass
is commercially available and a great amount of the CRT glass could potentially be used. The
foam glass is obtained after heat treatment of a powder mixture of the CRT glass and
reducing agent such as titanium nitride or silicone carbide. The basic principle of foam glass
manufacture is to generate a gas, by reaction between the reducing agent and lead oxide
contained in the funnel CRT glass. The gas expands thus producing a structure of cells to
form a porous body. A low density leads to high porosity, about eighty percent, and a single
pore size distribution has been obtained between 0.3 and 0.5 µm depending on the reducing
agent used. Lead metallic granules are observed on the pore surface.
The foam glasses obtained from the CRT glass are good insulators has evidenced by their low
thermal conductivity (<0.25 W.m-1.K-1) and also possess good mechanical properties. The
mechanical stress was obtained between 4 and 250 MPa and depends on synthesis process.
The insulating properties are conserved. This ensemble of properties permits to consider
industrials applications of thermal insulation production, in agreement with environmental
legislation. A partial depollution by mechanical extraction of the lead metallic granules
formed after heat treatment is possible.

Master: Elaboration and properties of composite Si3N4 – TiN
The aim of this study was to evaluate the mechanical properties and the oxidation behaviour
of a Si3N4 – TiN ceramic composite (35 vol% TiN – 65 vol% Si3N4).
The first part describes the densification of the powder mixtures (silicon nitride and titanium
nitride) in presence of additives (Y2O3, Al2O3) by Hot Isostatic Pressing and the analysis of
the dense materials. The composite was obtained by mixing the two powders, cold
isostatically pressing (dr = 54%), encapsulating inside a silica container with a diffusion
barrier. The experimental parameters were: 1825°C, 185MPa, with a dwell time of 60 min.
A small quantity of aids is present, but these do not exceed a content of 0.5% in volume. The
total densification is reached.
The second part is related to the study of the mechanical properties of the dense composite.
The material shows a micro-hardness of 19 ± 2 GPa, a three-point flexural strength of
538 ± 35 MPa at the ambient temperature which remains constant up to 900°C, a toughness
KIc = 6.5 ± 0.2 MPa.m1/2 and a thermal coefficient of 6.3 × 10-6 K-1.
The last part is devoted to the oxidation behaviour (fluent O2 atm: 5 l/h). The results have
been obtained between 1000°C and 1400°C. Up to 1000°C, the composite presents a very
good resistance to oxygen. From 1000°C to 1200°C, only rutile is formed. From 1200°C to
1400°C, a silica internal layer has been detected. A diffusionnel regime is proposed. This
material is proved to be performing up to 1000°C.
