Laszlo Toth is a technical advisor of DAMORPHE.
He is a Professor of Mechanics and Metallurgy at the University of Lorraine, France. His expertise lies in the field of experiments and mechanical modeling of textures and microstructures of SPD materials, especially on quantitative modeling of grain refinement. Laszlo has published over 200 refereed papers, h index being 41.
Laszlo has been the founder of two laboratories, the laboratory ‘LEM3’ (Metz) University of Lorraine in 2010 employing over 160 researchers and subsequently the Laboratory of Excellence on Design of Alloy Metals for low-mAss structures (‘DAMAS’) in 2012 of which he is currently the Director.
Laszlo is a physicist and pursued his doctoral degree from Eötvös Lorand University, Budapest. His Habilitation degree and direction was on “Plastic behavior of FCC polycrystalline metals subjected to simultaneous torsion and tension”, from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest. He has extensive international research experience during my various tenures of professorship: Invited ARC Professorial Fellow at Monash University, Materials Science and Engineering, Melbourne, Australia, 2009; Material Department, Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, 1990-1992; Principal Investigator in a Brite Euram project on Titanium; Visiting professor at the Metallurgical Department, McGill University, Canada 1986-1989, etc. To state a few of his accolades, Knight of the French Superior Education, Government of France and Grand Prize of Research of The Industrial Society of East-France 2012 etc.
