Our scientific work focuses on understanding the mechanical behavior of materials at extreme conditions accross the length scale from microscopic tests to testing of macroscopic samples. Our goal is not to carry out large number of experiments. On the contrary, we want to design our experiments very carefully, carry out the selected experiments, and focus our attention to analyzing the experimental data. We use different imaging and microscopic methods to characterize the material before, during, and after the test. We deliver scientific answers to practical and fundamental question regarding mechanical behavior of materials at extreme conditions over a wide range of length scales from microscopic to bulk scale. We offer our servises to the industry, but we are also actively seeking partners to join larger research consortia.
