Research Interests:

Dr. Ryan Dehoff graduated from The Ohio State University with a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering in 2008. Dr. Dehoff worked on process development of laser engineered net shaping pertaining to Nb-Si based alloys in conjunction with the mechanical behavior, microstructural characterization, and high temperature oxidation performance of these materials. During a brief post-doctoral position at The Ohio State University, he worked on microstructural characterization of aluminum alloys fabricated by ultrasonic additive manufacturing. Currently, as a research staff member at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory he is working in the area of direct manufacturing of components utilizing various techniques including electron beam melting, laser metal deposition, and ultrasonic additive manufacturing. He is developing processing techniques and exploring new materials via additive manufacturing to improve energy efficiency during component production, decrease material waste, and improve material performance. Currently his projects include near net shape fabrication of Titanium components using low cost feedstock materials and developing laser processing techniques for forming nanocomposite coatings and bulk components utilizing amorphous based powder materials.
