Russian scientists visiting our group
This fall we are happy to welcome three visiting scientists from Russia in our group. Our collaborations include the topics of dendritic solidification and phase field crystal simulations. The visit from Wladimir Ankudinov of the Udmurt State University in Izhevsk took place already in October, while professor Dmitri Alexandrov (Ural Federal University in Yekaterinburg) stays in Jena for three weeks in November. In December we welcome Ilya Sarodunov, also from Yekaterinburg.

Visitors in summer 2015
Prof. Mingfang Zhu from Southeast University, Nanjing, and Prof. Xinzhong Li from Harbin Institute of Technology visit our group in July/August 2015. We will foster our collaboration on solidification microstrcutres, temeprature gradient zone melting and the measurement of thermal properties.

ESA project on non-equilibrium solidification
The European Space Agency ESA gives us a grant to study rapid solidification processes. We are part of an international group of researchers from Germany, France, Canada, United Kingdom and Spain. Our part will be alloy making, carrying out experiments in an electromagnetic levitator and characterizing the samples.

DFG project on solidfication in thin capillaries
In a new DFG project that will start later in 2015, Dr. Klemens Reuther will study the solidification beavior of alloys and special aspects of interfacial energy in very thin capillaries with a diameter of ca. 1µm. The project will benefit from the competence of Prof. Markus Schmidt at IPHT for filling the capillaries with the liquid alloys

Young Career Investigators Workshop in Schlitz, Germany
In collaboration with Clausthal University of Technology (Prof. Rainer Schmid-Fetzer), a Young Career Investigators Workshop was held in Schlitz near Fulda in June 2015. Subject of the workshop funded by DFG was Thermodynamics and Kinetics. Young career investigators were prepared by international experts and a DFG representative for submitting their first proposal to DFG - quite close to an ideal preparation for a first project proposal.

DFG project DaDriS
Prof. Andrea Fried and two co-workers joined the Metallic Materials group for conducting research in collaboration with the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration. The full title of the project is ”Dangerous and Beneficial Drift of Standards in the Modern Working Environment".

DFG project on thermoelectric materials
German Research Foundation financially supports a project on thermoelectric materials.  The duration of the project is  3 years, starting from April 2015. Applying a special directional solidification technique (”seeding zone melting"), known thermoelectric materials will be improved concerning their performance, and basic research on interface density in thermoelectric materials will be carried out. Project leader is Dr. Dongmei Liu.

Second successful PhD thesis defense in 2014
Marcel Fink of our research group has successfully defended his PhD thesis in November 2014 - the second defense in 2014.

Roland Mitsche prize for Prof. Rettenmayr

In the frame of the 15. international metallography conference in Leoben Prof. Rettenmayr was awarded the Roland-Mitsche prize. The prize is awarded by the two societies ASMET and DGM and his the highest award in the field of metallography in the German speaking countries.

DFG project in the field of phase transformations extended
The research project ”Thermodyamics and Interdiffusion at Interfaces With Potential Jumps" receives funding from the German Research foundation for two additional years

PhD thesis successfully defended
In July 2014 Martin Seyring defended his thesis with great success.

Dr. honoris causa for Prof. Rettenmayr
During an extended ceremony in June 2014 the title ”Doctor honoris causa" was awarded to Prof. Rettenmayr at Miskolc university, Hungary.

DFG-project on Li ion batteries runs for 3 additional years
The project entitled ”Phase stability in Li alloys for Li storage anode materials" will be extended. The reviewers state that "in this project a very impressing report has been submitted, testifying the high competence of the applicants".

Fellowship for Dr. Lippmann
Dr. Lippmann receives funding of DAAD for a 6 months stay in Montral at McGill University in the group of Prof. In-Ho Jung.

Prof. Xinzhong Li in Jena
Prof. Xinzhong Li from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) joined our group in August 2013 and will work with us for a year on alloy development, directional solidification and computer simulation.

Reorganization of Materials Science Research in Jena - OSIM
The two institutes at FSU Jena that sustain the Materials Science eduction will merge to form the Otto Schott Institute of Materials Research (OSIM). An official opening ceremony will be held in November 2013. Prof. Rettenmayr is the first managing director of the institute

Dr. Liu in Jena
Dr.  Dongmei Liu, formerly Harbin Institute of Technology, joined our group to work on directional solidification of thermoelectric materials.

Invitation to Montreal
Following an invitation of Prof. Jung vom McGill University, Prof. Rettenmayr spent some time in Montreal to discuss segregation and the coupling of thermodynamics and kinetics for phase transformation simualtion in November 2012.
.
Invitation to Changzhou and Beijing
Prof. Rettenmayr was invited to give a plenary lecture in Changzhou at the conference of the Chinese Thermodynamicists and then was invited to participate at a symposium in Beijing as a foreign expert in a so-called 111-project in October 2012

Dr. Galenko joined the group
Dr. Peter Galenko, formerly DLR cologne, joined the Metallic Materials group in September 2012. He will mostly work on rapid solidiification phenomena with the focus on modeling.

Prof. Gamsjäger in Jena
Prof. Gamsjäger from Montanuniversität Leoben spent some time in our group in August 2012 to discuss phase transformations with diffusion and interface control.

Invitation of Harbin Institute of Technology
Prof. Rettenmayr was invited to deliver a series of talks and discuss directional solidification at Harbin Institute of Technology in March 2012.

Teaching award of Faculty of Physics for Prof. Rettenmayr
The students of the Physics faculty voted that the annual teaching award of the faculaty should be awarded to Prof. Rettenmayr. As all members of the research group are involved in the teaching activities, the award can be taken to go to everybody in the Metallic Materials group.

Prof. Rettenmayr leads the Institute of Materials Science and Technology
In an election of the new director of the Institute of Materials Science, Prof. Rettenmayr was elected by the members of the institute. The rector of FSU confirmed the election by appointing him as director of the institute in November 2010.
