Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung

The Max‐Planck‐Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH (MPIE) was founded in 1917 and is located in Düsseldorf.

The institute is equally financed by the Max Planck Society and the Steel Institute VDEh – the representative of the German steel industry. This 50% institutional co‐sponsoring by industry determines a unique example of a public private partnership for the Max Planck Society.
The research is carried out on iron, steel and related materials, such as nickel, titanium and intermetallic phase alloys. An essential target of the investigations is an improved understanding of the complex physical processes and chemical reactions of these materials.

All departments are linked to the IMPRS‐SurMat:

  • Computational Materials Design
  • Interface Chemistry and Surface Engineering
  • Microstructure Physics and Alloy Design
  • Structure and Nano‐ / Micromechanics of Materials

Also is the independent research group Nanoanalytics and Interfaces linked to the IMPRS-SurMat.
