Solid State Thermodynamics Group

Group Leader: Eugen Rabkin

Solid State Thermodynamics Group is located in Materials Science & Engineering Faculty in Technion – Israel Institute of Technology (IIT), which is located in Haifa, northern Israel. Our Group is focused on studying the thermodynamics and kinetics of nanostructured and interface-dominated materials, and on exploring the mechanical properties of materials on the nanoscale.

Our goals: To be the main knowledge center in Israel in the field of Physical Metallurgy

  • To develop an integrative and scale-bridging approach in Materials Engineering, combining experimental studies with mesoscale analytic modeling and atomistic computer simulations
  • To develop novel materials for hydrogen storage
  • To spread our knowledge to students
  • To assist the Israeli industry
