Processing of Functional Materials

Ilya Okulov mit gedruckter Probe

The group “Processing of functional materials” is focussing on exploring the combination of self-assembly and 3D printing processes to produce complex, hybrid, locally anisotropic functional materials.

Specifically, the self-assembling structures are synthesized by means of dealloying methods such as liquid metal dealloying. The gained knowledge is transferred to the development of devices based on 3D hybrid materials with extraordinary physical and/or electrochemical properties and potential applications in energy generation and storage, lightweight construction, and medical technology.
