Institute Applied Materials
The further development of modern materials requires the basic understanding of their macro-,micro- and nanostructure under different conditions. X-rays and neutrons as well as complementary lab methods available in the Institute of Materials allow for a detailed characterization of the studied systems thus providing the fundaments for a better comprehension of the governing processes.
Characterization of the foaming process, improvement of the current manufacturing process and development of new ones.
Complementary investigations of fuel cells with synchrotron x-rays and neutrons.
Rechargeable and disposable batteries are a crucial element for electronic appliances, future electromobiles and stationary energy consumers. Work at the Institute concentrates on understanding internal processes in batteries.
