Research Groups

The 'Adaptive Structural Materials' (ASM) group is a joint experimental and theoretical (ab initio) effort to develop next-generation high-strength and high-ductility metallic materials.

Adaptive Structural Materials

The 'Adaptive Structural Materials' (ASM) group is a joint experimental and theoretical (ab initio) effort to develop next-generation high-strength and high-ductility metallic materials.
The research in this group is devoted to the physics of (meta)stable thermodynamic phases as well as transitions between them. The major vision is an ab initio based prediction of thermodynamic bulk phase diagrams, being directly related to many technologically relevant properties and processes in metals.

Project Groups

Growth modeling

The aim of the project group Growth Modelling is to investigate the physics underlying the growth of semiconductor materials. The group has a strong focus on III-Nitride materials and on surface and extended defect related topics.
The project group aims at the computational design and accelerated exploration of complex concentrated alloys (CCAs) and related concepts such as multi-principal element alloys and high entropy alloys (HEAs). Mechanical, thermodynamic and materials properties are investigated by means of computer simulations in close collaboration with experimental and theoretical partners at MPIE and worldwide.
