The Metals and Materials Physics Division organises the following topical sessions at the Spring Meeting in Regensburg 2016:

  • DPG-Symposium SYCE and Topical session (Symposium MM): Caloric Effects in ferroic materials

    The DPG-Symposium SYCE "Caloric effects in ferroic materials" of the DPG-divisions DF, DS, MA, MM will be continued as a Topical Session (Symposium of the MM).

    Giant magneto-, electro-, and elasto-caloric effects have been reported in materials close to ferroic phase transitions, where large entropy changes induced by applying external magnetic, electric, or stress-fields lead to temperature variations under adiabatic cooling. This effect can be exploited in cooling devices. Solid state refrigerators have enormous potential for reducing electricity consumption, and thus the worldwide emission of greenhouse gases. Furthermore, the scalable mechanism opens up further applications such as cooling of microsystems based on thin films. This prospect has generated a lot of interest in this topic, exemplified by the establishment of the DFG priority program SPP 1599, Ferroic Cooling. The goal of this symposium is to highlight recent developments in the exploration of caloric effects in ferroic materials, and to bring together researchers working on magneto-, electro-, or elasto-caloric effects and combinations thereof. Identification and modeling of common features of these three effects will create synergies that will foster future progress towards a scale-bridging understanding of this emerging field.
    This topical session is connected to a corresponding joint symposium organised by the divisions MM, MA, DF, DS.

  • Topical session (Symposium MM): In-situ Microscopy with Electrons, X-Rays and Scanning Probes in Materials Science

    Many properties of materials are determined by processes on the nanometer scale. As a result, nanostructured materials are controlled by size and interfaces, which can give rise to e.g. enhanced mechanical properties and new physical effects leading in turn to new functionalities. In order to enhance our understanding of how structure forms and transforms under realistic conditions, in situ microscopy and nanocharacterization techniques based on short-wave radiation (electrons, X-rays/neutrons) or scanning probes become increasingly important. By studying materials in situ under controlled external stimuli, such techniques permit to measure properties and directly monitor material processes under temperature, mechanical strain, magnetic and electric fields, and chemical environments in real time. This symposium will present recent progress in the field of in-situ microscopy in several invited talks by leading experts and aims at bringing together specialists from the three pillars of nano-characterization and the entire materials spectrum. Special emphasis will be given to the use of complementary techniques and the combination of experimental approaches and modeling. Contributed papers are very much welcome.

  • Topical session (Symposium MM): Integrated computational materials engineering for design of new materials

    In the past few years an enormous progress in using computational tools to predict materials with tailored properties has been made. This progress is based on novel theoretical concepts, on highly efficient numerical implementations as well as on a huge increase in available computer power and provides completely new routes to design materials. The symposium will provide a platform for the scientists from the various communities who are working in this field and give an overview about recent developments and future challenges. Topics that will be addressed and where abstracts are welcome are:

    • Multiscale method developments and applications to real world materials
    • Materials discovery and design strategies
    • High throughput approaches, materials database frameworks
    • Coupling the various scales including error/sensitivity analysis
    • Emergence of materials properties/functionalities from fundamental properties
    • Connection to experimental approaches (benchmarks for theory, databases, etc.)
