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.
The department ‘Microstructure Physics and Alloy Design’ investigates the fundamentals of the relations between synthesis, microstructure and properties of often complex nanostructured materials. The focus lies on metallic alloys such as aluminium, titanium, steels, high and medium entropy alloys, superalloys, magnesium, magnetic and thermoelectric…
The Computational Materials Design (CM) Department aims at the development and application of hierarchical and fully parameter-free multiscale methods which allow to simulate iron, steel and related materials with hitherto unprecedented accuracy.
