Niels van Dijk

My research focuses on the in-situ investigation of phase transitions in structural and magnetic materials with the help of radiation techniques. My main fields of expertise are phase transitions, magnetic materials, structural materials, metallurgy, self-healing materials, neutron scattering and synchrotron radiation. After a master in solid-state physics at the Delft University of Technology, I completed a PhD in experimental physics at the University of Amsterdam and was a post-doc at the French Atomic Energy Agency (CEA) in Grenoble, where I performed neutron scattering experiments at the Institute Laue-Langevin.

I have been involved in Applied Physics courses on Electrodynamics, Thermodynamics, the Honors track and the Research Practical.

Student research projects:
There are regular opportunities for BSc and MSc research projects on structural and magnetic materials.
