Body-centered-cubic (BCC) high entropy alloys show exceptional strengths up to 1900K [1]. Fundamental understanding of the mechanisms that control strengthening is necessary to formulate a theory that enables screening over the immense compositional HEA space [2]. Supported by experimental findings in NbTaTiV and CrMoNbV alloys [3], we show with theory [4] that edge dislocations can


Faced with major societal challenges (ecological crisis, energy crisis), it is essential to better understand the behaviour of materials in order to improve the lifespan of nuclear reactors as well as their safety. The properties of materials are... 

NOMATEN Suppliers Day

CoE NOMATEN 2024 started with a workshop with industrial companies, where the Centre's competencies and research capabilities were discussed and the research infrastructure at NOMATEN was presented. One of the objectives of the meeting was also to discuss the possibility of cooperation with companies in the modernisation of the MARIA research reactor at the NCBJ and conducting joint research and projects for the development of the energy sector in Poland.


Hydrodynamics can play a critical role in the degradation of materials, often defining the rates and mechanisms by which metals corrode. To improve the understanding of the relationship between fluid flow and corrosion, precise and well characterised experimental techniques are required. The application...


Atom probe tomography (APT) is a unique analysis technique providing chemical analysis with near atomic resolution in 3D. Here, recent APT research on nuclear materials performed at Chalmers University will be presented. Zirconium alloys are used as fuel claddings in nuclear reactors and undergo degradation due to corrosion, hydrogen pick-up and irradiation damage. Using APT...


Peptide toxins from venoms have undergone a long evolutionary process allowing host defense or prey capture and making them highly selective and potent for their target. This has resulted in the emergence of a large panel of toxins from a wide diversity of species, with varied structures and multiple associated biological functions. In this way...


Displacive transformations, like deformation twinning or martensitic transformation, are associated with microstructure evolution, which involves nucleation, propagation and annihilation of interfaces. For instance, the functional properties...
