Professor Wilson gained his undergraduate degree in physics and then postgraduate degrees in electronics and in optics from Otago University in New Zealand. His interests then changed to soft condensed matter and in particular the antifreeze proteins polar fish use to survive in ice-laden waters. Postdoctoral work included measuring the thickness of the ice-water interface and for much of his career Professor Wilson has been studying the nucleation of supercooled solutions and how best to measure the nucleation temperature. In 2005, Roskilde University, Denmark, awarded him the degree Doctor Scientiarum. Professor Wilson now works in the Faculty of Life and Environmental Science at the University of Tsukuba in Japan.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Peter Wilson

Recrystallization is a phenomenon moderately well documented in the geological and metallurgical literature. This book provides a timely overview of the latest research and methods in a variety of fields where recrystallization is studied and is an important factor. The main advantage of a new look at these fields is the rapid increase in modern techniques, such as TEM, spectrometers and modeling capabilities, all of which are providing us with far better images and analysis than ever previously possible. This book will be invaluable to a wide range of research scientists; metallurgists looking to improve properties of alloys, those interested in how the latest equipment may be used to image grains and to all those who work with frozen aqueous solutions where recrystallization may be a problem.
