Our new article on In-situ observation of the initiation of plasticity by nucleation of prismatic dislocation loops (open access) is now published in Nature Communications [Lee et al. Nat. Commun. 11, 2367 (2020)]. This work propose an in-depth description of the formation of prismatic dislocation loops in metallic nanowires, by the combination of in-situ electron microscopy and large scale atomistic simulation. My contribution to the numercial part of this work has been carried out at the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg in the group of Prof. E. Bitzek.
I am glad to annonce that our new article on the Assessment and optimization of the fast inertial relaxation engine (FIRE) for energy minimization in atomistic simulations and its implementation in LAMMPS is now published in Computational Materials Science.
From March 1st to March 6th, 2020, the 4th Schöntal Symposium will be held in the recluse monastry of Schöntal in Germany. I am glad to participate to this symposium focused on Dislocation-based Plasticity and related topics
On Feb. 17th, 2020, in Aachen, there has been the Kick-off meeting of the Collaborative Research Center (CRC1394) that aim at building fundations of defect phase diagrams. This project funded for 4 years by the DFG (German Research Agency) gathered the strengths of 19 principal investigaors (PIs) from the RWTH Aachen, the Max-Planck Institut for Iron Research (MPIe, Düsseldorf) and the FAU Erlangen-Nurnberg.
From January 1st, 2020, I am most happy and pround to be part of the CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research). As tenured CNRS research scientist (Chargé de recherche) assigned to the LEM3 laboratory (CNRS - Lorraine University - Arts et Métiers ParisTech), I will pursue my work on the atomistic origin of defects and their consequences on mechanical properties, and on building bridges with continuum mechanic approaches.
