Our group offers a new Elective course "Materials Under Extreme Thermodynamic Conditions" for GTIIT MSE students

The aim of this course, offered to graduate and undergraduate students,  will be twofold: a) introduce to students how material properties are affected by extreme thermodynamic conditions, ranging from high axial strain, due to substrate mismatch, to shock/detonation events that induce extreme pressure and temperature conditions and b) how we can use extreme conditions to synthesize novel materials with outstanding physicochemical properties. The various experimental techniques aiming to mimic such conditions in a laboratory environment and how to probe relevant material properties will be also discussed. The main goal of the course is for the students to become aware and familiar with a 2D phase space (pressure and temperature) and how material properties and synthesis are affected by this 2D phase space. Moreover, ultrafast phenomena (extreme condition events lasting for < 1 µs) will be briefly discussed. Finally, geoscience related systems under extreme conditions will be discussed.

Our group is a Partner of the 10th Asian Conference on High Pressure Research: https://www.achpr10.org/. In addition to an invited presentation, our group will also have two contributed presentations. Thanks to the organizing committee, and specially to DuckYoung Kim, for their support. ACHPR-10 will be held jointly with the 19th International Conference on High Pressure Semiconductor Physics (HPSP-19) and the 3rd International Workshop on High Pressure Study on Superconductors (WHS-3).
