Congratulations Dr. Ånes!

January 25th, 2024

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”.
