Professor Dye's research Interests focus on the fatigue, micromechanics and design of jet engine, aircraft and reactor materials, particularly superalloys, titanium, NiTi, TWIP steels and zirconium. In his group, they work on problems across the life-cycle from alloy design to processing to fatigue and failure. A lot of the work involes advanced TEM techniques, complementing work at neutron and synchrotron major facilities like ISIS, Diamond, ESRF and SNS. We have also worked on residual stresses, on in situ microbeam Laue synchrotron diffraction on micropillars, on shock loading using the short-pulse X-ray laser at LCLS in Stanford, as well as more routine techniques like EBSD and conventional lab-based characterisation. The group also have substantial capability to make and process novel alloys in their lab.
