NOMATEN’s seminars deploy the idea of science dissemination


In 2020 NOMATEN launched the new area of activity: a series of open scientific seminars devoted to the topics related to materials’ challenges and research. Moreover, the goal has been not only to share the expertise but also to build a community of researchers across the science areas. NOMATEN hosted the seminar while inviting external scientists to act as speakers.

The initial seminar by Javier Dominguez PhD from Max Planck Institut fűr Plasmaphysik took place in March 2020 at the premises of the NCBJ. The topic was Classification and quantification of material defects in damaged crystalline solids by machine learned based MD simulations and a novel fingerprinting and visualization tool. In fact, Mr Dominguez joined NOMATEN as a researcher on Summer 2020.

Due to the pandemic, the following seminars has been set up as online events: the topic Ab initio-based modelling of high-entropy alloys by Jan S. Wróbel PhD from the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, (Warsaw University of Technology) and the other one, Scanning electron microscopy and related techniques in application to materials characterization by Iwona Jóźwik from the NCBJ. The seminar given my Dr. Wrobel gave the opportunity to establish a collaboration between his group and Dr. Stefanos Papanikolaou’s group. The main topic of this research is the study of High entropy alloys from a thermodynamically perspective. Dr Rene Alvarez is also included in this collaboration due to his expertise in Bulk Metallic Glasses.

Apart from my scientific work I am a coordinator of NOMATEN's seminars. If you want to join these events in the future please follow our webpage as well as LinkedIn channel in order to be up to date with our scientific meetings.
