Välkommen till Materialvetenskap

Välkommen till Institutionen för Materialvetenskap (MSE). Vi ansvarar för forskning och undervisning inom ett område som omfattar allt från konstruktionsmaterial till avancerade material. Som exempel på olika material kan nämnas aluminiumlegeringar, rostfritt stål, verktygsstål, högtemperaturmaterial, zirkoniumlegeringar, kompositmaterial, högtemperatursupraledare, magnetostriktiva material och minnesmetaller. Undervisningen omfattar grundläggande kurser i materialvetenskap men också avancerade kurser i fasomvandlingar, termodynamik, mekaniska egenskaper, keramiska material, korrosion, legeringsdesign och kurser i materialval. Institutionen är medlem av "Scientific Group Thermodata Europe" (SGTE)

Seminar: "Genomic Materials Design: From CALPHAD to Flight" by Professor G.B. Olson, Northwestern University, USA At 15.00 Wednesday Nov 19 in lecture hall B2, Brinellvägen 23

Professor Greg Olson is a pioneer and one of the international leaders in the emerging field “science-based materials design”. He has collaborated with researchers at KTH for a long time and thereby significantly promoted the research activities at KTH. By combining state-of-the-art knowledge from quite different disciplines to engineering tools, he has been able to design several new materials, ranging from steels to bubble gum. For example, he has combined ab initio quantum mechanical calculations, CALPHAD-based thermodynamics and kinetics with modeling of mechanical properties to simulate how composition, synthesis and processing affect the materials final performance. These new materials have then been produced and the target properties have been verified. Some new materials have also been commercialized. Greg Olson is the founder of the company Questek whose mission is to develop new materials for their customers. Greg Olson has played a very important role in what is now called the "Integrated Computational Materials Engineering."

Professor Olson will be promoted to honorary doctor at KTH on Friday Nov 21.
