Dr Vladimir Luzin

Instrument Scientist

Role at ANSTO

Dr Vladimir Luzin is co-responsible for the KOWARI Strain Scanner. His fields of expertise includes materials science, specifically the stress and texture analysis by means on neutron, X-ray diffraction, synchrotron radiation and electron back scattering diffraction (EBSD) in connection with material's (mechanical) properties.

Originally Vladimir focused on quantitative texture analysis, he received his PhD in 1999 from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research where he had worked since 1993 in Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics in the German-Russian group studying textures in geological materials using spectrometers SKAT and EPSILON on the reactor IBR-2.

After receiving his PhD he worked at the GKSS neutron facility FRG-1 (texture diffractometer TEX-2) during 1999-2000 as a posdoc. From 2001 to 2006 he works at the NIST Center for Neutron Research in field of stress analysis at the BT-8 Residual Stress Diffractometer studying residual stresses and textures in various industrial components (sprayed coatings, welded joints, rails, wires, etc.) and materials of industrial importance.
