Material's characterization

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.

Metallic foams

Metallic foams
Characterization of the foaming process, improvement of the current manufacturing process and development of new ones.

Fuel Cells

Fuel Cells
Complementary investigations of fuel cells with synchrotron x-rays and neutrons.

Battery Research

Battery Research
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.
