Bild von M. Sc. Tanmoy Chakraborty

Tanmoy Chakraborty started his PhD in June 2013 at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation (ICAMS), Ruhr-Universität Bochum.  He is investigating the structure and composition of Ti-Ta shape memory alloys on the atomistic level using density-functional theory.  To study the transformation mechanisms between different stable phases he employs the solid-state nudged elastic band method to determine the minimum energy path as well as transition path sampling to investigate dynamical properties.

Research focus:

  • electronic structure calculations of the stability and structure of relevant Ti-Ta phases
  • minimum energy path of phase transformations in Ti-Ta shape memory alloys
  • dynamical investigation on the atomistic level of transformation kinetics and mechanisms
