Research Lines

Atomic computer simulation of the evolution of crystal defects: Plastic deformation and radiation damage.

  • Twinning in hcp metals and alloys: atomic level processes at twin boundaries.
  • Interaction of grain boundaries with bulk dislocations in ferritic steels.
  • Radiation damage: Structure and diffusion of radiation induced defects (RID). Interaction of RID with dislocations and grain boundaires
