Synchrotron and Plasticity

Exploring plasticity and fracture by in situ diffraction and microscopy techniques


  • Micromechanical testing
  • Nanostructured materials:

    pillars/wires, thin films, nanocrystalline materials

  • Printed and flexible electronics
  • In situ synchrotron and microscopy techniques
  • Peak shape analysis:
    Powder and µLaue diffraction
  • Characterization of dislocation-based and grain boundary-mediated deformation mechanisms
