Research in the department 'Microstructure Physics and Alloy Design' is on the relationships between synthesis, microstructure and mechanical as well as functional properties of nanostructured materials. Focus is placed on metallic alloys such as steels, high and medium entropy alloys, superalloys, magnesium, titanium, Heusler phases and aluminium…
The Department of Interface Chemistry and Surface Engineering is conducting fundamental research in the electrochemical sciences, with a strong focus on corrosion and adhesion science as well as electrochemical energy conversion.
This department performs basic research in the field of local deformation processes as a key to resolve and understand the mechanisms initiating plasticity and causing failure of advanced materials. We develop experimental methods to perform quantitative nano-/micromechanical and tribological tests and apply advanced X-ray diffraction and high resolution electron microscopy techniques.
