M.Sc. Dipl.-Ing. Mélanie Clozel - German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute of Materials Physics in Space
Though much has been improved in the design of bulk metallic glasses since the 1960s, parts are still usually produced by casting, limiting their size to a few millimetres to centimetres in thickness due to falling cooling rates and increasing crystallisation when increasing casting diameter. This limitation has been the greatest impediment to the use of BMGs as structural parts and tools, despite their advantageous properties. Only recently...


Dr. Wojciech Nogala - Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences Warsaw, Poland.
Nanostructured metallic catalysts are usually obtained by homogeneous synthesis. Then one needs to apply capping agents to stop the growth of nanostructures and prevent their aggregation. Capping agents affect the catalytic properties of such prepared nanostructures by hindering access of reactants to the catalyst surface. Electrochemical methods allow...


Dr. Misaki Ozawa - Interdisciplinary Physics Lab at the University of Grenoble Alpes, France.
For a long time, physicists have determined Hamiltonian for a given problem by following a bottom-up approach starting from physical principles such as symmetry. Nowadays, thanks to a large amount of data available, it has become possible to estimate Hamiltonian by machine learning, i.e., inferring it from a large dataset of observations from experiments or simulations. The majority of physical systems...

NOMATEN is hiring

Multiple positions at NOMATEN CoE available. We are hiring new scientists in the fields of materials science and radiopharmaceuticals at junior and mid - senior level.


NOMATEN staff participated in the NUMAT conference held in Ghent, Belgium from 24th till 28th October. The Nuclear Materials Conference (NuMat) was created in 2012 in association with the Journal of Nuclear Materials to serve as an umbrella for international meetings on nuclear materials science related to fission and fusion reactors and the overall nuclear fuel cycle.

Katarzyna Nowakowska-Langier, PhD, DSc - Metastable Structure of Layers Shaped During Pulse Magnetron Sputtering.
The forming the properties of materials consists in fulfilling the sequence of different energy states. First, one should obtain the state of increased free energy, as the excited initial state for subsequent treatments and then conduct controlled relaxation of this energy excess in order to reach a lower level of non-equilibrium energy state of material - defined as a new degree of structure metastability, both in phase and morphological terms. This grade determines the usable properties of the material...

Marek Pruszyński and Anna Krzyczmonik at the 35th Annual Congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine

The 35th Annual Congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) was held on October 15-19, 2022 in Barcelona, Spain. The EANM Congress with more than 150 Sessions is the most valuable Nuclear Medicine Meeting worldwide. Each year, nearly 7,000 participants and 180 companies use the possibility to discuss the newest trends and findings in the field of Nuclear Medicine.


Dr. Jacques O'Connell - Center for High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy, Nelson Mandela University.
TEM is a powerful tool for materials analysis at the nano-scale offering unmatched spatial resolution combined with chemical analysis. I will present a series of interesting examples where TEM offered valuable insight in research conducted at the Centre for High Resolution Electron Microscopy. A popular trend... 

NOMATEN Autumn School 2022
27.09.2022 to 29.09.2022

VTT hosted the next edition of NOMATEN Autumn School. Researchers from NCBJ in Poland and CEA in France visited Finland for the NOMATEN's internal conference in order to share the latest research outcomes and share the expertise. The School has been followed by a series of site visits at VTT and Aalto University.
