Two Ph.D. positions in computational materials science at University of Manitoba, Canada

Two Ph.D. positions are now available for January 2014 or September 2014 on computational materials sciene in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Unviersity of Manitoba. The potential student will work on the mechanical properties in nanoglass and crystalline/amorphous composites. Students with strong interests in atomistic simulations (MD, ab inito, monte carlo, etc.), good programming skills (C, Fortran, etc.), and experimental skills in nanomechanical test (e.g., nanoindentation) are encouraged to apply. International applicants please convert your GPA of last 60 credits (normally your MSc and part of your BSc) to a 4.5 scale according to the following guidelines:

Opening for Master/Ph.D. in computational materials science

Two openings for Master/Ph.D. studentship are now repost for January, 2013 in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Manitoba in the field of computational materials science. Students with a strong background/intrest in materials simulation (atomistic, e.g., Ab initio, MD or Monte Carlo, or mesoscale phase field simulations) are encouraged to apply. The potential students will work on one or more of the following projects: (1) solute effects on grain boundary diffusion/mobility; (2) microplasticity in metallic glass and nanocomposite; (3) plasticity in nanowires and nanocrystalline metals/alloys. Interested students please send your CV and inquires to Prof. Deng (dengc@cc.umanitoba.ca).

Graduate studentship (Master or Ph.D) available in computational materials science

Openings for two graduate studentship (Master/Ph.D) are available for the fall semester, 2012 in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the Univeristy of Manitoba. Students who have a strong background in materials simulations (molecular dynamics, monte carlo simulations, or phase field) are especially encouraged to apply. The potential students will work on one or more of the following projects: (1) Solute effects on grain boundary diffusivity/mobility; (2) Microplasticity in metallic glass and nanocomposites; (3) Plasticity in metal nanowires. Interested students please contact Prof. Deng (dengc@cc.umanitoba.ca) for more details.

A new paper on the nanoscale plasticity in twinned gold nanowires

A new paper titled "Enabling Ultrahigh Plastic Flow and Work Hardening in Twinned Gold Nanowires " from Dr. Sansoz's group just came out on the latest issue of NanoLetters. Attached below is the abstract and the full paper can be found at: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/nl803553b. We welcome any comment about this paper as well as our research.

Software to generate x-ray diffraction pattern

Hello all,

 Does anyone know any software that can generate x-ray diffraction pattern for polymer? I used to have Cerius2 which can do the job very well, but unfortunately the license expired some months ago and I am looking for some alternative software that can do similar job. Right now I have all the structures saved in .msi format. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks a lot!
