Superalloys represent key materials for turbine blades in modern gas turbines for aero engines and power plants. International mobility and global energy supply rely on this fascinating class of high temperature materials. Improvements in efficiency and emissions demand new concepts for alloy design and fabrication technology. This colloquium focuses on recent progress in material and process development in the field of Ni- and Co-based superalloys taking into account future trends in developing, processing and applications of these extraordinary materials. The collaborative research center SFB/TR 103 „From Atoms to Turbine Blades“ aims on gaining a scientific basis for future generations of superalloys. The colloquium will bring together researchers and industrial users to accomplish improvements in this field.
