However, developing a new material with an optimum set of properties involves trillions of possibilities. Which elements to choose, what should be the crystal structure, which is the best processing route, what are the optimum processing parameters etc.? The conventional approach is to start with one or two compositions, synthesize the material by one route, and perform characterization and property evaluation. </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span>This approach typically takes 20-30 years to develop a new material for real applications. On the other hand, the accelerated discovery approach starts with a large number of compositions and relies on high throughput synthesis, characterization, property evaluation, predictive machine learning modelling to rapidly screen a huge number of compositions<sup>1, 2</sup>.  </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span>This approach can cut the development time to ~3-4 years and identify completely new attractive compositions. We have deployed several advanced high throughput techniques such as additive manufacturing, spark plasma sintering, chemical flow synthesis, magnetron co-sputtering and machine learning to rapidly discover new high-performance materials<sup>1, <em></em>3</sup>. Compositions with an optimum magnetic-mechanical-electrical property set, required for next generation energy conversion machines, have been identified by our approach. Our results demonstrate the attractiveness of high throughput techniques for the quick development of high-performance materials. </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span><br /></span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span><strong>BIO</strong></span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><b>Dr. Varun Chaudhary</b> is a Senior Research Fellow at the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore.

Magnesium alloys are indeed distinctly promising candidates for structural applications throughout the automotive, aerospace, and electronics industries. Magnesium alloys are biodegradable and have an elastic modulus analogous to that of a bone, and thus, they are also being considered for use in tissue engineering, orthopaedics, and cardiology. </div> <div> </div> <div>Nonetheless, the widespread use of cast alloys in such applications has been hindered by their (1) relatively poor degradation characteristics (due to magnesium’s reactive nature) and (2) limited formability (due to insufficient deformation modes and strong basal texture). Exploring the potential of alternative manufacturing routes to produce the next generation of alloys with the desirable physical properties can hence be significant for a wide range of sectors ranging from biomedical devices to complex lightweight consumer goods, and to other emerging technologies. </div> <div> </div> <div>For instance, the design freedom of additive manufacturing can entirely address the magnesium-alloy formability issue, as it enables the production of near-net shape products and eliminates the need to further form or shape the alloys. Besides, the control over process parameters can yield alloys with tailored microstructures and properties treatments. Herein, some of the challenges and benefits of using additive manufacturing for producing functional magnesium alloy components will be discussed. </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div><b>BIO</b></div> <div> </div> <div><b>Marco Esmaily</b> received his PhD in Materials Science from Chalmers University of Technology in 2016.
