Henrik Pedersen received his M.Sc. in Chemistry in 2004 and his Ph.D. in Materials Science in 2008, both from Linköping University in Sweden. After a stint as industrial researcher at Sandvik Tooling Research and Development center in Stockholm, Sweden, he returned to academia and is today Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Linköping University. He has during the past decade been exploring CVD for electronic materials, hard coatings, and neutron detectors. His research is focused on understanding and developing new and better chemical vapor deposition methods by considering the time dimension in CVD, developing new precursors and new ways to use plasmas in CVD.
