Breaking the Wall To A Start-Up Nation How Technological Entrepreneurship Saves Economies with Limited Natural Resources( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Dan Shechtman became a full professor at Technion in 1986 and initiated a new class on technological entrepreneurship, the word "start up"--Which became a mantra after the dot-com boom - was not that fashionable yet. Even today, entrepreneurship education is not fully explored in business schools, where students rather learn about maintaining a company than about bringing a good idea to a profitable realization. From today's perspective, it is not surprising that Shechtman's unique program became one of the most attended courses at Technion and that by now, the class was visited by more than 10,000 engineers and scientists. Shechtman's research as a chemist, which was led mostly during his sabbatical years, opened the new science of quasiperiodic crystals and explored several other subjects, earning him recognitions such as the Wolf Prize in Physics, the Gregori Aminoff Prize of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the EMRS Award and the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2011. To Dan Shechtman, technological entrepreneurship is more relevant than ever, having turned Israel from a country with scarce natural resources to a powerhouse of innovation. At Falling Walls, Shechtman, a pioneer of an entrepreneurial revolution that changed the face of a country, explains how the fostering of strong national start up cultures, science education and supportive policies can help developing countries to economic growth and prosperity

Supersaturated Aluminum Alloy Powders( Book )

2 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four aluminum alloys, designed for use at elevated temperatures, supersaturated with iron, chromium and other elements: Ti, V, Zr, were studied. The starting materials were alloy powders made by the RSR (Rapid Solidification Rate) centrifugal atomization process (approx. one million (deg C/sec)) developed by Pratt and Whitney Aircraft and extrusion bars were made from four powders. The as extruded microstructure and the microstructure of the annealed alloys at 482 C (900 F) were investigated by optical and transmission electron microscopy, and by X-ray diffraction. The microstructure included equiaxed grains of aluminum matrix and two types of precipitates, namely: Theta-Al3(Fe, Cr), and Al6(Fe, CR)--which is a metastable phase. The precipitates were different in their shape, size, distribution and location within the grains. The thermal stability of the four alloys was investigated by hardness measurements, following annealing at various temperatures. The alloy structures were found to be stable up to 400 C (750 F). Tensile properties of the alloys were investigated at room temperature, 232 C (450 F) and 332 C (630 F)

Investigation of the Icosahedral Z-Phase in Aluminium Transition Metal Alloys and Rapidly Solidified Al-Alloys( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The discovery by Shechtman, of five-fold symmetry in rapidly solidified aluminum alloys stimulated world wide interest and activity in the preparation and properties of the materials. Likewise, research on the microstructure of a variety of rapidly solidified aluminum alloys including those containing iron and chromium has been advanced. This report covers the work of two Principal Investigators, Dr. Leo Bendersky and Dr. Dan Shechtman, plus their research collaborators, which has been reported in the scientific literature during the first half of 1986. The five publications reproduced here represent a significant contribution to our understanding of the icosahedral phase and the microstructure of rapidly solidified alloy

Transmission Electron Microscopy of the CVD Diamond Film/Substrate Interface( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Progress has been made in understanding growth patterns of Thin Fine Grain Diamond CVD Films. In the study which was performed by High Resolution Electron Microscopy attention was focused on the fault structure as a function of the position in the grain as well as on the formation of mismatch boundaries within the growing diamond crystal. These boundaries are formed due to mismatch between certain twins within the growing crystal. It was found that these boundaries can serve as precise indicators for the local growth direction of the crystal and thus to lead back to the nucleation point in a given TEM cross section. In an example given in this report the local nucleation point is traced back to a 5-fold twin site
