Scientific results repository


This page is a repository of information about scientific research carried out by Luiz Fernando Zagonel.

L. F. Zagonel holds a PhD in Physics and works with solid state physics, surface physics, plasma, eletron microscopy, among others.
He graduated in Physics in the Parana Federal University-Brazil. His Master degree studies, performed at the Rio Grande do Sul Federal University-Brazil, were dedicated to magnetic anisotropy of thin Co films. His PhD research was performed at the Campinas State University-Brazil and at the Max-Planck Institute for Metal Research-Germany and was dedicated to the microstructure and phase transitions of a nitrided iron alloy. Then, he did a Post-Doc at the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique-France for studying oxides surfaces. Followed by another Post-Doc at the Université Paris Sud working with Transmission Electron Microscopy for Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy and Cathodoluminescence. Currently as a Faculty member in the Physics Institute of the Campinas State university.
