The International Metallographic Contest and Exhibit was held in Portland, Oregon, from August 2-6. It features the best work of metallographers and microstructural analysts from around the world, and exists to advance the science of microstructural analysis through the opportunity for students and professionals to showcase their work.

There are five different classes of competition covering all fields of optical and electron microscopy. Classes 1 through 3 describe how metallography can be used to help solve a problem or to describe an unusual technique. Classes 4 and 5 are for artistic pictures.

The complete list of winners is on IMS’s web site.

Congratulations to our Lehigh MSE team!
