Process R&D Intern (Optimization of optical microscopy methods for titanium alloys)

In this internship role, you will optimize optical microscopy methods for titanium alloys produced via selective laser melting.

What you will do

  • The aim of this internship is to improve the current process of optical microscopy, starting from fast and reliable sample preparation up to optimization of software algorithms to decrease the analysis time for different sample types. Next to the optimization of existing methods, the intern will be requested to provide a working prototype to quickly compare 2D CAD files (input) to 2D microscopic images (output).
  • The intern will work in the Process R&D team in the Materialise Medical unit where the intern will learn more about the basics of additive manufacturing for medical applications.
