Dr. Håkon Wiik Ånes successfully defended his thesis January 25th 2024. Håkon has done his PhD work in the physical metallurgy group at Department of Materials Science and Engineering, in a project associated to SFI PhysMet. The topic of Håkon’s presentation at the trial lecture was “Correlated multiscale 3-dimensional structure analysis with X-rays and electrons”. The trial lecture was followed by an excellent presentation of his PhD thesis “Effects of second-phase particles on texture during softening of an Al-Mn alloy investigated by correlative microscopy”.
Professor Knut Marthinsen has been the candidate’s supervisor and Professor Antonius Theodorus Johannes van Helvoort, Department of Physics, has been the candidate’s co-supervisor.
