From the 1st of January, 2018, I'm glad to start leading the new group focused on atomistic simulations of the IMM at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany.IMM

The IMM (Instute für Metallkunde und Metallphysic or Institute of Physical Metallurgy and Metal Physics) is headed by Prof. Dr. Sandra Korte-KerzelSandra Korte-Kerzel since the retirement of Prof. Dr. Günter Gottstein in 2013. The institute is focused on nano-mechanical testing (nanoindenter, tensile/compression tests) and characterization technics (X-Ray, SEM, SEM-FIB, TEM/HRTEM) to understand and improved mechanical behaviors of complexe materials. The laboratory has also strong capabilities in samples preparation (metling furnaces, single-/ bicrystals growth) and miscellenous heat treatments.RWTH Aachen
