He currently serves as a board member for several signification organizations such as the European Crystallographic Association (ECA), the International Society of Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence (ISBC), and the International Conference on the Chemistry of the Organic Solid State (ICCOSS).
The extension twins give extension along the crystallographic c-axis in magnesium and reorient the crystal by 86[degrees] around <1[bar.2]10> directions, while the contraction twins supply contraction along the crystallographic c-axis and reorient the crystal by 56[degrees] around <1[bar.2]10> directions [8, 9].
Depending on the bath type and temperature, duration of the galvanising process, postgalvanising cooling methods, the type of steel, and surface preparation prior to galvanising, zinc coatings differ in terms of thickness, chemical composition, phase composition, morphology, crystallographic structure of the surface, appearance, mechanical and corrosion properties, etc.
Since crystals often have different performances (e.g., electrical conductivity, thermal expansion coefficient, and mechanical strength) in different crystallographic orientations, fully grasping the crystallographic orientation parameters is necessary in the structural design of ZnO devices and mechanical behavior prediction for material microstructure.
