Welcome to the Körmann Research Group

Welcome! The research group of Fritz Körmann, a collaboration between the Max-Planck-Institut in Düsseldorf and the Delft University of Technology, aims at the computational design and accelerated exploration of materials throughout parameter-free (ab initio) computer simulations. A main focus is currently on complex concentrated alloys (CCAs) and related concepts such as multi-principal element alloys and high entropy alloys (HEAs). Mechanical, magnetic, thermodynamic and materials properties are investigated by means of computer simulations in close collaboration with experimental and theoretical partners worldwide.
