Microstructure Physics


Our research is focused on understanding the microstructure formation and evolution, and the mechanisms behind deformation and fracture processes in structural materials, primarily for demanding high-temperature environments. We aim to provide quantitative data regarding these processes and contribute to the development of multi-scale modelling approaches to describe the phenomena. We develop and use methods for in-situ characterization of phase transformations and micro-mechanics in bulk materials, thin films and interfaces with the help of electron microscopes and X-ray/neutron scattering techniques.
