We’re back from ICOMAT 2017 in Chicago!

ICOMAT – International Conference on Martensitic Transformations

Below are some of the highlights of our trip!



Erica gave a talk describing recent progress with laser-deposited magnetocaloric Ni-Mn-Co-Sn.

Amir and Katerina presented posters on binder jet printing of magnetocaloric and magnetic shape memory alloy materials.


We went to a cocktail party at the beautiful Adler  Planetarium.


After attending some interesting talks, all conference attendees took a break to explore Chicago. Many of us went on a fascinating architectural boat tour.



Dr. Chmielus gave a talk about the lab’s work on additive manufacturing of functional magnetic materials.

We said goodbye to our Polish collaborators

… and we all went on the ICOMAT dinner cruise and played giant Jenga!



And now we’re home, with new research ideas and new friends. Thanks, ICOMAT!

  1. Dr. Chmielus’ lab is the lab that has the most wonderful team spirit that I’ve ever seen. Everyone in this lab has a pretty nice publication record and an impressive research experience. If you have the chance to learn in this lab, then you will know exactly how much you can benefit from this research team. By the way, I am not even majoring in Engineering, but as a researcher myself, I can tell this is what a good lab should be look like.
