PhD project: Investigation of the local atomic structure of Cellulose using Scanning Electron Diffraction.
Supervisor: Tom Willhammar
Dissertation planned to: 2025
This project focuses on improved characterization of cellulose using electron microscopy, particularly 4D-STEM. The study spans from the aligned orientation of nanofibers in wood and other biomaterials to the crystallinity and morphology of extracted nanocellulose.
Research theme: 1–wood components, 4–material concepts
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
