Prof. Dr. Klaus Hack

Dr. Klaus Hack graduated in Physics from RWTH Aachen University, Germany. He started working in thermochemistry while undertaking research for his diploma (high temperature mass spectrometry on ternary alloys) and continued in this field with his doctoral work (adiabatic high temperature calorimetry on ternary alloys). During his postdoctoral work at National Physical Laboratory, UK, he carried out assessments of boron-metal systems and also developed software for the assessment and calculation of binary and higher order substitutional solution properties.

Dr. Moritz to Baben

Dr. Moritz to Baben finished his diploma studies in Metallurgical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in 2007. He did his PhD at Materials Chemistry (Prof. Jochen M. Schneider, RWTH Aachen University) where he was also active in teaching materials chemistry classes and introduced video excercises and a virtual student's lab. The tile of his PhD thesis is "Oxygen incorporation in MAX phases and TiAlN and elastic properties of nanolaminates" and deals with materials design based on quantum mechanics and a newly developed combinatorial setup allowing for variation of the metal to non-metal ratio. He joined GTT-Technologies in 2016. Follow Moritz to Baben on ResearchGate

Dr. Gunnar Eriksson

Dr. Gunnar Eriksson is the developer of the successful thermochemical application software programs, ChemSage, and its equally renowned predecessor SOLGASMIX. He graduated in Chemistry at Umeå University, where his main interest was the development of software programs for the calculation of complex multiphase, multicomponent equilibria. He has published about 80 scientific papers in this and related fields. He has worked mainly in Canada and Germany; and for shorter periods, in the USA, England, Australia and Japan.

Dr. Stephan Petersen

Dr. Stephan Petersen graduated in Metallurgical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in 1989. He started to work in thermochemistry as an undergraduate student at the Department of Theoretical Metallurgy (now Materials Chemistry) at RWTH Aachen University in the working groups of Dr. Philip Spencer and Dr. Klaus Hack. He subsequently joined the Institute of Solid State Research at Forschungszentrum Jülich, where he worked on high-pressure solution growth and defect thermochemistry of gallium-arsenide. This formed the basis for his Ph.D. degree, which he received in 1994. He joined GTT-Technologies in 1992.

Dr. Michael Schick

Dr. Michael Schick graduated in chemistry  from the University of Bonn in 2001. Subsequently he focused on surface science, especially on the examination of epitaxial crystal growth using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) at the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry (University of Bonn), where he received his PhD degree in 2006. From 2006 to 2010 he worked as a scientist at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Cologne, examining thermophysical properties of liquid metallic alloys. In 2010 he joined Materials Chemistry (MCh) at RWTH Aachen University, where he was involved in thermodynamic modeling of binary and ternary metallic systems using CALPHAD methods. He joined GTT-Technologies in 2012.
