Our group is concerned mainly with structure and phase formation in non-equilibrium materials. Particular interests are in solidification of undercooled liquids, processing of nanocrystalline and glassy powders, high-entropy alloys, short-range atomic order and dynamics, surfaces and interfaces.


  • Time-resolved high-energy X-ray diffraction
  • Formation of stable and metastable phases in undercooled liquids
  • Deformable soft-magnetic bulk glassy alloys
