Research Interest: The research of Dr. Chmielus is focused on the development, processing, advanced manufacturing, characterization and application of functional metallic materials. These include 1) magnetic shape memory alloys that can be used for sensing, actuation and power generation applications and 2) magnetocaloric materials that change their temperature when exposed to a magnetic field and can be used in high efficiency cooling applications. Using additive manufacturing, we strive to optimize and further improve properties of the materials and final applications.
