Sven Oras (born 1989) has a PhD in Materials Chemistry (2018, University of Upper Alsace) and Master’s Degree in Physics (2014, University of Tartu). His research activities are focused on the experimental characterization of nanostructures focusing mainly on mechanical and tribological properties. In the MATTER project Sven is a post-doc responsible for performing nanomanipulation experiments inside scanning electron microscope (SEM) affecting single nanostructures and performing characterization of nanostructures with atomic force microscope (AFM). By the end of 2020 Sven has 15 publications in Google Scholar database, with h-index 8.
