Masoud Rashidi

Doktorand at Chalmers, Physics, Materials Microstructure

He was born in 1987. He was awarded MSc degree in Materials Science and Engineering from KTH-Royal Institute of Technology in 2013. He did his master thesis project at Linkoping University in collaboration with Sapa Technology, TitanX Engines Cooling, and KTH on Al-Mg-Si alloys. He has been a PhD student since April 2013 aiming to develop a new generation of 9-12 % Cr steels to be used in thermal power generations. This will be done by microstructure characterization of different trial steels using Scanning Electron Microscopy, Transmission Electron Microscopy, and Atom Probe Tomography.
