Krystyna Marta Stiller

Professor at Chalmers, Physics, Materials Microstructure

My research focuses on an understanding of the relationships between materials’ microstructure and materials’ properties using high-resolution microscopy and microanalysis techniques such as electron microscopy and atom probe tomography (APT). I am particularly interested in deepening our knowledge of processes of phase transformations and corrosion (including environmentally enhanced crack propagation) of engineering materials (Ni-based superalloys, steels, aluminium alloys). Currently I am also exploring the possibilities of applying APT to study the connection to microstructure-electric transport properties of oxide based semiconductors.
