Below is a list of recent and forthcoming events at Lucideon, as well as conferences and other events that we have attended or will be attending.

2022                                    Event
6 September 2022 Webinar: Hydrogen - Diffusion, Permeability, Hydride Formation and Metallic Embrittlement - A Metallurgical Perspective on Hydrogen Issues. Part I - Containment, Diffusion & Permeability
The growing use of hydrogen in the energy industry sets in motion a myriad of metallurgical issues and problems. The metallurgical community has long been dealing with problems associated with hydrogen interaction with metals; from containment in its liquid state at cryogenic temperatures to its burning as a fuel at high temperatures and everything in between. This two-part webinar series deals with some of the more complex metallurgical issues related to hydrogen. Part I (this webinar) addresses issues associated with cryogenic containment, diffusion, and permeability. A discussion of cryogenic materials selection and processing is presented addressing proper containment of hydrogen at extremely low temperatures. The nature of hydrogen gas is covered with a discussion revolving around the very small and very reactive nature of the hydrogen atom. It can diffuse through any material and permeate its microstructure. You can’t stop it, but maybe you can slow it down and control it.

2021                                    Event
17 November 2021 MaterialsMatrix Online Panel: Powering Up: How Women in Energy are Driving Change
The energy sector is experiencing a dramatic change: a shift from fossil-based systems of energy production and consumption - including oil, natural gas and coal - to alternative energy sources, like wind, hydrogen and lithium-ion batteries. In addition, the energy sector is experiencing an increase of women in the workforce; however, the percentage is still less than half.
The speakers on the panel were women who are currently involved in the rapid energy transition. They explored the contribution of their energy source to the future, discussing the barriers to women in STEM and how can we get more women in the sector, as well as learning about the panellists' experiences as women in energy.
