Ab Initio Simulations & Ni base Superalloys
One of the most important structural changes is the departure of Prof. Stratmann who left the institute for becoming the next president of the Max Planck Society. His view about the relationship between research and industry is one important topic in this newsletter. Other items relate to the development of computational simulations for investigating surfaces under realistic environmental conditions and the microstructural evolution in single crystal Ni-base superalloys. Also please have a look at the upcoming workshops.
