Spotlights from research

Our scientific expertise covers the synthesis, characterization, and modelling of advanced materials along the entire production chain of machine components. We strive to achieve accurate control of the chemical composition and microstructure of individually tailored structural and functional materials at all length scales during their manufacturing, engineering, and usage.

Currently our members lead eight coordinated DFG programmes:
