Going deeper into the next generation of implants, with three disciplines at once
It has been the undisputed gold standard for implants for dozens of years: titanium. This strong, light and corrosion-resistant metal can be safely incorporated into the body. And yet there is a great deal of discussion about how titanium implants are made. The rise of 3D-printing technology has opened the door to new manufacturing possibilities.

‘Geheim van de Meester’ now in theatres in the Netherlands
Last year you got to know the AVRO/TROS programme ‘Het Geheim van de Meester’ (The Secret of the Master), which dealt with the glorious history of Dutch painting.
Alternatives to hexavalent-chromium-based aluminum surface treatment
PhD student Shoshan Abrahami and her supervisors associate professor Arjan Mol and professor Herman Terryn from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering published surprising results this month in Nature’s partner journal Material Degradation. They have developed, together with Fokker Aerostructures and the Technical University of Denmark, alternatives for hexavalent chromium-based aluminium surface treatment for bonding in aircraft construction.
Herman Terryn receives American award for preventing corrosion of materials
Herman Terryn, part-time professor at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, will receive the ‘H.H. Uhlig corrosion award’ on 3 October for his pioneering research on the corrosion of metals. Preventing corrosion is extremely important because corrosion causes huge economic damage. The award will be presented during a conference of the Electrochemical Society in National Harbor (Washington , DC).
