Jan Fikar received his Ph.D. in Materials Science from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, where he subsequently worked as a postdoc. The objective of his work at IPM is to eludicate the interactions between dislocations and point defects and to formulate a thermodynamic model of plasticity that takes into account these effects.
Andriy received his Ph.D. in Metallurgy from the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague and then worked as a postdoc at the Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Rep. At IPM, he will work on atomistic calculations of transformation pathways of screw dislocations in BCC W under stress using a new Bond Order Potential.
