Symposium A-5: Session “Silicon and Silicide II”, Aug. 31

Prof. Thimont made an invited talk about their special processing technique for making higher manganese silicide.

Prof. Ikeda, who is the other invited speaker, introduced the technique for making super-saturated solid solutions and nano-sized precipitates in the Si-based materials.

Two of the contributed talks were made by students, Mr. Alinejat and Mr. Takamatsu, and they made nice talk about synthesis technique of Mg2Si and thermoelectric properties of CrSi2 based C40 phase, respectively.

The number of attendee was roughly thirty, and all the talk had many questions.
