  • Special issue of Surface Engineering celebrates life and achievements of Tom Bell

    IOM3
    Tom Bell, who died in April 2008 aged 66,was an influential figure in establishing the discipline of surface engineering, a term he has a strong claim to have invented. He was also, in 1985, the founding editor of the journal Surface Engineering , which is marking its twenty-fifth anniversary with a special issue dedicated to his memory. Edited by Dr Hanshan Dong, his colleague at University of Birmingham, UK, the issue contains 16 specially commissioned articles detailing the state of the art in areas where Professor Bell made an active research contribution together with three personal appreciations by former colleagues and collaborators.

  • nano-coating

    Coated in nano-controversy?

    Materials World magazine
    Nano-enabled coatings have been widely championed over the last decade, but, to-date, applications commercialised successfully have been small volume, high added value products. Delegates at the Nano-enabled Coatings event, held on 23 September in London, UK, believe the time has arrived for the breakthrough into large volume, mass applications.
