Publication Newsletter

February 2020

Welcome to the Publication Newsletter

Each month, dozens of peer reviewed papers are published using Thermo-Calc Software products. These papers demonstrate the wide variety of applications and interesting work that is being done with our tools. The aim of this new quarterly newsletter is to share with our community a sampling of some of the interesting papers that have been published in the last three months. 

We hope that you will find this a useful resource for your own work. If you would like us to include a paper that you have recently published, please send us a link and we may include it next time. We can also consider slide decks from recent presentations, videos of talks, etc. Anything that may be of technical benefit to our broad user community.

Thermo-Calc Training
Thermo-Calc Software provide introductory training courses for Thermo-Calc, DICTRA, TC-PRISMA and TC-Python in both Stockholm, Sweden, and Pittsburgh, USA, multiple times per year.  
These courses provide a solid foundation for using the software tools, as well as "hands-on" experience filled with examples, insights and tips based on the years of practical experience of our instructors, which allow attendees to get up and running with the software much more quickly.
Some comments from attendees of our training courses include:
"Very good introductory course with lots of examples that make me confident in doing basic work and provided ideas for more advanced research."
"Very helpful overall. Would recommend to others."
"Overall this week of courses was well worth the time. I feel prepared to get busy with Thermo-Calc and DICTRA and TC-PRISMA. Thank you!"
Visit our website for a complete list of training courses and information on how to sign up, or email us at .
*All training is conducted in English.   
TC-Python Training
TC-Python is our popular Python-based API which allows users to openly couple Thermo-Calc calculations with other software. This two-day training course will introduce and teach TC-Python. 
Day one is for Thermo-Calc users who have little or no experience using Python and day two will teach about TC-Python. Courses  are being held in both Sweden and the USA
