Complex Concentrated Alloys
The various activities in the group related to
- Method development for advancing thermodynamic ab initio approaches to complex alloys (in particular efficient tools for capturing lattice vibrations and magnetic fluctuations),
- Interstitial defects and impact on stacking fault energies for complex alloys,
- Screening of magnetic properties of high entropy alloys,
- Phase stability and short-range order in multi-component alloys,
aim on extending the previously developed tools applied to unaries and selected ordered compounds for capturing magnetic and lattice free energy contributions towards more complex, multi-component alloys alas high entropy alloys. The developed methods are applied to screen for new promising alloys with desired magnetic and mechanical properties.
