Materials Science

The Materials Science Group uses a large number of tools to study advanced materials on the length scale of sub-nanometer to centimeter. The group focuses on topics like metals and advanced alloys (high temperature alloys, light weighted alloys, steels), batteries (Li-ion batteries, Zebra batteries), fuel cells, fuel element development, and development of instrumentation and sample environment for materials science.

A monthly group meeting serves to foster information exchange between the group members. The presentations cover the methods as well as the activities within the numerous projects supported by 3rd party funding and supervised by group members. Examples include in-situ and in-operando Li-ion battery studies and a project to collect basic nuclear data of Actinides. The group is responsible for the organisation of the VDI-TUM Expertenforum which is held every 2nd year, recently in 2014. A special focus of the group is on sample environment development specifically designed for advanced material development and analysis.

Topics

  • Metals and alloys
  • Li-ion batteries
