Mechanics and Physics of Solids

Materials, surfaces and interfaces are studied from the nanoscale to the macroscale and designed using numerical and analytical tools. A special emphasis is put on geometrical features of the microstructure, which often dictates the material behaviour on larger scales. Mechanical, optical, magnetic, and other functional properties of materials are studied. The theoretical calculations are validated by experiments and used to design new materials in the laboratory.
