Prof. Dr. Osman Adiguzel, Firat University, Department of Physics, Turkey

Dr. Osman Adiguzel was born in 1952, Nigde, Turkey. He graduated from Department of Physics, Ankara University, Turkey in 1974 and received PhD- degree from Dicle University, Diyarbakir-Turkey in Solid State Physics with experimental studies on diffusionless phase transformations in Ti-Ta alloys in 1980. He studied at Surrey University, Guildford, UK, as a post doctoral research scientist in 1986-1987, and his studies focused on shape memory alloys. He worked as research assistant, 1975-80, at Dicle University, Diyarbakir, Turkey. He shifted to Firat University in 1980, and became professor in 1996, and He has already been working as professor. He published over 50 papers in international and national journals; He joined over 70 conferences and symposia in international and national level as participant, invited speaker or keynote speaker with contributions of oral or poster. He served the program chair or conference chair/co-chair in some of these activities. In particular, he joined in last two years over 10 conferences as Keynote Speaker and Conference Co-Chair organized by South Asian Institute of Science and Engineering (SAISE), web:, and Science and Engineering Institute (SCIEI), web:, and other institutes and companies.
Dr. Adiguzel served his directorate of Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences, Firat University in 1999-2004. He supervised 5 PhD- theses and 3 M.Sc theses. He is also Technical committee member of many conferences. He received a certificate which is being awarded to him and his experimental group in recognition of significant contribution of 2 patterns to the Powder Diffraction File – Release 2000. The ICDD (International Centre for Diffraction Data) also appreciates cooperation of his group and interest in Powder Diffraction File.
Scientific fields of Dr. Adiguzel are as follow: Martensitic phase transformations and shape memory effect and applications to copper-based shape memory alloys, molecular dynamics simulations, alloy modeling, electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction and crystallography, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).
