Dr Hanliang Zhu

Senior Materials Scientist, Nuclear Fuel Cycle

Role at ANSTO

Hanliang Zhu is a senior material scientist with a background in materials research. His main responsibilities are to investigate microstructural effects on various properties and microstructural evolutions in various service environments such as corrosion, creep and irradiation of advanced materials for nuclear and other industries. 


He  joined ANSTO in 2010. Since then he has carried out research activities on microstructural aspects of advanced materials, ranging from current structural materials to potential candidate materials topics such as microstructural design of titanium aluminide alloys for high temperature nuclear structural applications. He has utilised various microstructural characterization techniques, including TEM and SEM methods, to tackle problems in the areas of microstructure of advanced materials.
