Floris Osmond

Floris Osmond (10 March 1849 – 18 June 1912) was a French scientist and engineer. He is known as one of the originators of metallography.[1] He named several phases that occur in iron and steel microstructures such as martensite, after A. Martens,[2] and cementite.[3] [4] A list of publications was published shortly after his death.[5]
