Dr Simon Hogg

Senior Lecturer in Materials

Areas of expertise

Expertise: Ultra high strength nano-quasicrystalline and nano-fibril alloys and composites; processing and characterisation of Al-Fe-Cr-Ti-(Nb) alloys and FCC-BCC metal-metal fibril composites produced using non-equilibrium processing; large central synchrotron and neutron facilities applied to metallurgical problems; x-ray synchrotron (diffraction and spectroscopy); neutron based techniques; and bulk microstructure and local chemical structure in novel alloys.


Hogg's focus is the use of advanced processing and characterisation to understand microstructural development and properties in complex, novel alloys.
