Thermo-Calc 2023a Release Overview

Thermo-Calc 2023a Release Overview

Learn about the highlights of Thermo-Calc 2023a, which was released in December 2022 and includes several improvements to our software and four new databases. In this webinar, the developers themselves will present what’s new in the 2023a release. 

We are excited to announce that Thermo-Calc 2023a introduces Dark Mode in the Graphical User Interface. This release also includes several updates to the Scheil Calculator and introduces an Additive Manufacturing Module, which is released in closed beta, but is visible to all users to view the coming features. 

The 2023a release also includes four new and four updated databases, including our first ever zirconium mobility database, MOBZR1. Two of the database developers will present the main improvements of the new databases included in this release.

About the Speakers


Dr. Amer Malik
Software Developer
Thermo-Calc Software AB

Amer Malik, Ph.D. 

Amer Malik started working at Thermo-Calc Software in 2021, and since then he has been involved in the development of the Additive Manufacturing Module in Thermo-Calc. He received his PhD in 2013 from the Royal Institute of Technology KTH, Sweden, specializing in phase-field modeling of martensitic transformation. After spending two years as a post-doc in the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering at KTH, Dr. Malik continued his research with finite-element based microstructural modeling of diffusional transformations in steels.


Dr. Jan Julin
Software Developer
Thermo-Calc Software AB

Jan Julin, Ph.D. 

Jan Julin joined Thermo-Calc Software in 2018 and has been working on the calculation core of Thermo-Calc since his hiring. For the 2023a release he worked on the new features added to the Scheil Solidification Calculator. He received his PhD in physics from University of Helsinki, Finland, in 2011 and afterwards continued working in research, mainly at Stockholm University, before joining Thermo-Calc Software.


Dr. Yang Yang
Database Developer
Thermo-Calc Software AB

Yang Yang, Ph.D. 

Yang Yang graduated as a Master in Materials Science and Engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology KTH in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2011. She also received her PhD from KTH, studying vanadium-containing oxide systems based on CALPHAD and experiments. Dr. Yang accumulated research experience in relevant experimental techniques and CALPHAD simulations. She joined Thermo-Calc Software in 2016 with her main responsibility being the development of the Ti/TiAl-based alloys database, TCTI. During this time, she has gained a significant understanding of the systems included in the TCTI database as well as extended her knowledge about thermodynamic modeling.


Dr. Fangzhou Xing
Database Developer
Thermo-Calc Software AB

Fangzhou Xing, Ph. D.

Fangzhou Xing graduated in Materials Science and Engineering and received his PhD from Central South University in mainland China. In 2021 he joined Thermo-Calc Software and has worked on developing mobility databases since then. His research mainly includes computational modelling of diffusion kinetics in metallic alloys, oxides, and lithium battery cathodes based on the CALPHAD method.


Dr. Carl-Magnus Lancelot
Technical Sales and Support Engineer
Thermo-Calc Software AB

Carl-Magnus Lancelot, Ph.D. 

After graduating as a Master in Materials Science & Engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology KTH in Stockholm, Sweden, Carl-Magnus pursued a PhD in computational thermodynamics, studying the Tellurium-induced corrosion of Stainless Steel in Generation IV Nuclear Reactors in a joint project between KTH and CEA Saclay, France. He joined Thermo-Calc Software after graduating in 2019, spending 3 years as the developer of the Ni-based superalloys database. Since 2022, he works with technical support and customer relations.
