Research Interests:

Yukinori Yamamoto received his Ph. D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, in March 1999. After 9 years professional experience as a physical metallurgist in Japan and in United States, he joined Materials Processing Group (currently in Alloy Behavior and Design Group and Materials Processing and Joining Group) in Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) as a research staff member. Yuki’s research has been focused on a development of metal-based structural materials, especially Ti-, Fe-, and Ni-base alloys, to be used for automotive parts, aircraft, and recuperator/tubing in energy conversion systems such as fossil/nuclear power plants. He is currently working for various steel developments including ferritic-martensitic steel weldments, heat-resistant austenitic stainless steels, accident-tolerate FeCrAl base fuel cladding materials, and alloy design of wrought and cast alumina-forming austenitic stainless steel alloys. His expertise is in the area of microstructure characterization and phase equilibrium which is used to guide the improvements of processing procedure, mechanical properties, material qualities of commercial, and developed materials.
