Diffraction Studies of Materials Properties

Balzar Lab

Davor Balzar

Professor Davor Balzar's research interests are mainly in studies of materials' properties by diffraction methods.

The focus is on:

  • strain and defect determination through the measurement and modeling of diffraction line broadening;
  • and the development of methods for analysis of residual strain/stress, texture and defects in materials.

Materials currently of interest include photovoltaics, ferroelectrics, wide band-gap semiconductors and nanocomposites for biomedical applications.
