Mattias Thuvander

Docent at Department of Physics, Materials Microstructure

My research interest is focused on the relation between properties and microstructure of materials, and how properties and microstructure are affected by processing, heat treatment and in-service exposure (for example temperature, stress, oxidation, wear and irradiation). The main tool for my research is atom probe tomography, but I also apply electron microscopy and other techniques. I have mostly worked with metals (steels, nickel-based alloys and zirconium alloys), but also wear resistant thin films, semiconductors and recently biomaterials (implants and bone).
