13th February 2019

The third edition of MAPEX Methods Workshop took place on 13th of February, 2019, having "mechanical characterization techniques" as its main focus. Around 40 PhD students, postdocs and MAPEX members gathered to discuss about the testing capacities available at the University of Bremen. The workshop started with a brief lecture from Prof. Brigitte Clausen on the basics of mechanical testing. Afterwards, nine speakers gave the audience an overview of the available methods, ranging from mechanical tests with in-situ microstructural monitoring, micro/nano-scale tests and specific characterization techniques for metals, fibers, composites, adhesive joints, as well as multilayer structures like computer boards. This time, the workshop also counted with the presence of an external speaker, Dr. Henry Ovri from Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, who reported about the nano mechanical test facilities of his institute. In general, the workshop was a great opportunity for researchers to exchange experiences and learn about different mechanical test techniques, which may lead to future collaborations.

MAPEX Methods Workshop II - Computational Materials Science

17 May 2018

The “simulation toolbox at the University of Bremen” was in the focus of the second MAPEX methods Workshop taking place on 17 May 2018. More than 40 experimental and computational scientists, master students as well as professors, met in the TAB building in order to get an overview about “Computational Materials Science in Bremen across multiple time and length scales”, as introduced by MAPEX speaker Lucio Colombi Ciacchi. The following eight speakers provided a comprehensive overview about their different fields of expertise, ranging from the simulation of electrons in 2D materials, electrons and atoms at interfaces over the structural prediction of biomolecules to the simulation of fluid processes and the calculation of crystal plasticity. Lively discussions during the lunch and coffee breaks demonstrated the huge potential for new ideas and collaborations.

This workshop was organized in cooperation with the Bremen Center for Computational Materials Science and the DFG Research Training Group QM³.

MAPEX Methods Workshop I - Materials Characterization

The first MAPEX Workshop on Characterization Methods took place in the TAB building on June 13th 2017. More than 30 participants from chemistry, materials science, physics, and production engineering enjoyed 10 accessible, yet in-depth presentations covering the full range from high-precision measuring techniques to exciting in situ experimental approaches to quantify the structural, physical, chemical, and optical properties of materials and elucidate their synthesis, transformation, and modification by various treatments. PhD students, postdocs, and MAPEX PIs alike were excited to learn about existing state-of-the-art instruments and technical expertise that are available for collaborative use within the MAPEX community. The presented material is also available for download for registered within the university network.
