Møller, Danish Technical University, recipient of the 2017 William Blum NASF Scientific Achievement Award Due a serious illness, Dr. Per Møller was unable to make the journey to Sur/Fin 2018 to present his William Blum Memorial Lecture. His longtime professional colleague, Dr. Lars Pleth Nielsen of the Danish Technological Institute, presented it in his stead. The lecture covers a wide variety of applications in which surface engineering is key, including sustainable energy, self-cleaning paints and antibac- terial surfaces. The full presentation with commentary by Dr. James H. Lindsay can be accessed at Electro-codeposition of MCrAlY Coatings for Advanced Gas Turbine Applications – 5th Quarterly Research Report Prof. Y. Zhang & J.C. Witman, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Tennessee Technological University The NASF Research Board has funded this research project under Prof. Ying Zhang's direction to study and optimize the MCrAlY electro-codeposition process to improve the coating oxidation/ corrosion performance. This first year of work involves the effect of operating parameters on the CrAlY particle incorporation in the coating. The full paper can be accessed at NASF18Sep2 .
