Research Unit Nanostructured Materials
Our research unit covers a vast range of science topics from fundamental research on particle-wave-dualism to applied device research on printed electronic cicuits. To do so, we explore new material classes like nanoglasses, high entropy oxides, variable magnets, or metastable alloys using synthesis methods such as ultra-selective high-vacuum cluster deposition, high pressure torsion, and inert gas cooling. By high-end transition electron microscopy, we can analyze our materials and processes on the atomic scale.
Have a look at our team of material scientists, physists, chemists, and electrical engineers and start your journey to share our excitement for nanostructured materials.
