Lucas Kreuzer YourFriendlyPhysicist

Hello friends!

My name is Lucas Kreuzer, and I am always curious about new things. No matter how small, large, near or far away they are. That’s probably the reason, why I am a scientist. You never know, what new thing is hiding just around the corner. 

I am an experimental physicist with a chemical background, who investigates polymeric and metallic materials with neutron and x-ray scattering. Currently, I am studying the relationship of dynamics and structure in liquid metal alloys (sometimes in micro-gravity environment). My research aims to develop improved alloys for light weight constructions (e.g., in the aerospace sector). In addition, the experimentally obtained data contributes to the generation of advanced algorithms that are used in simulations of complex multi-component metal systems.
I created this website to share my research and other science news with you (just hover over the panels below to see what's behind them). I am deeply convinced that science must be a part of our society. But I am also deeply worried that in times of fake news and conspiracy theories, our society is loosing the acceptance of scientific findings. What are the consequences, especially for the next generations? Therefore, I want to promote science communication. For me, this also includes the possibility of discussion and exchange.
From time to time, I would also like to talk about my experience as a scientist and what advantages and disadvantages this brings along. Hopefully, this collection of new (and sometimes old) science and semi-randomly selected PhD and postdoc experiences helps you, as much as it helps me, to orientate in an always evolving and fascinating academic wonderland.

Thanks for stepping by! ✌🏽
