László is a member within the Euro-MIC COST framework. This project is funded by the European Union and enables scientists to bridge knowledge and capabilities across countries and disciplines.

Summary of the experiences and competences of László

I am primarily an electrochemist also delaing with corrosion studies and scanning electron microscopy. I am keen on special and complex materials science problems, which MIC is certainly one. While I have some limited experience related to industrial research, my speciality is the construction of non-standard laboratory experiments that we can use to clarify mechanisms not accounted for in routine analysis methods. Since my education includes physics and chemistry, I approach to corrosion problems from the solid-state side. Although I have no experience in biology, I rate myself as a person with a highly interdisciplinary manner of thinking.

Looking for help? László can help you with the following items

Have you ever experienced that a SEM operator looked at your corroded sample with a dark face, virtually telling that your sample is nothing but a piece of mess? This is what will not happen to you in my lab. Seldom could you find another lab where the SEM operator is also a corrosion expert to whome it is needless to say what to pay attention to. So, if you are curious of the fine details of your corroded work piece, just turn to me.
Another speciality of mine is the construction of custom-designed unique equipments. Examples from my part research is an automated lab-scale simulation device of a full steel pickling line and a corrosion workstation for accelerated study of differential ventillation effec coupled with MIC.

Further details

László Péter is a scientific advisor at the Wigner Research Centre for Physics (Budapest, Hungary). He graduated as a teacher of physics and chemistry at the Eötvös University of Budapest in 1992 and obtained the PhD degree at the same university in 1995. After spending 2 years in the USA as a postdoctoral fellow and 1 year in Japan as a visitor scientist, he returned to his home country and started working in the predecessor of the Wigner Research Centre. His main interest is electrochemistry; in particular, the formation of solid phases in electrochemical processes, the composition depth profile and physical properties of electrodeposited materials and electrochemical background of corrosion. Beside electrochemistry, he deals with various fields of experimental physical chemistry and research aspects of industrial problems. His publication list includes more than 100 research papers, 2 book chapters and 1 monograph. He is the founding secretary of the conference series called International Workshops on Electrodeposited Nanostructures (EDNANO). In 2013, he became the doctor of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. From 2020, he is one of the topical editors of Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry (Springer).
