MSc. 2008 Montanuniversity Leoben
PhD candidate since 2009
Peter Felfer received his MSc in Materials Science from Leoben University (Austria) in 2008. His Masters thesis was in the characterization of a new HSLA steel using atom probe tomography and transmission electron microscopy. During this period he started working on the problem of site-specific sample preparation for the atom probe, with a focus on grain boundaries. Since 2009 he is a PhD candidate at the Australian Key Center for Microscopy and Microanalysis (Sydney University).
The PhD project: ‘Atom Probe Tomography of Grain Boundaries’is carried out under the supervision of Dr. Julie Cairney. It is targeted to develop methods to produce samples from specific areas within a material, such as grain boundaries and analyse them in the atom probe.
