This article highlights both developments. Niobium Mining Company Funds Research into Key Steel Alloying Element The global leader in niobium mining, Brazilian company CBMM, is funding Professor Frank Mu ¨ cklich and his research team at Saarland University and Steinbeis Mate- rial Engineering Center Saarland (MECS) for three years. Professor Frank Mu ¨ cklich of Saarland University With the help of atom probe tomography, researchers aim to determine how niobium is incorporated within steel at the nanostructural level and how it inﬂuences the metal’s and atom probe tomography. The information and image properties. sequences that we produce are then fed into a computer Niobium is a raw material with strong global demand, where they are combined to generate an exact spatial particularly in the steel industry. In pipelines, niobium representation of the material structure, in some
