The Phase Transition Kinetics group

The Phase Transition Kinetics group supervised by prof. Rafal Abdank-Kozubski presents a wide experience in the field of atomic-scale modeling of superstructure formation and phase stability in bulk and nanostructured intermetallics by means of "ab initio" calculation and SGCMC, KMC and MD simulations, as well as in the field of experimental studies of the above phenomena by means of residual and in situ resistometry, XRD, TEM, SEM, magnetometry. The research output of the group covers over 100 publications in high-impact journals (Progress in Materials Science, Physical Review B, Acta Materialia, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics etc.).
Current interest of the group is focused on direct Monte Carlo modeling of interdiffusion in the systems showing Kinkendal effect, as well on the modeling of interfaces by means of Molecular Dynamics.
The researches are carried out in a wide domestic and international collaboration with European and Australian institutions.
