Great news with regards to research funding:

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) has announced that it will extend two Collaborative Research Centers (SFBs) involving the Materials Science Department for another funding period.

In the SFB TRR “From Atom to Turbine Blade – Scientific Foundations for a New Generation of Monocrystalline Superalloys“, several chairs and professors, respectively, are involved as subproject leaders in ongoing subprojects:

  • Mikro- und nanomechanische Charakterisierung von Super-Legierungen bei höheren Temperaturen (Mathias Göken, WW1)
  • Einkristalline y’-gehärtete Co-Basis-Superlegierungen – Legierungsentwicklung, Gitterfehlpassung und mechanische Eigenschaften (Mathias Göken und Steffen Neumeier, WW1)
  • Atomistische Simulationen elementarer Versetzungsprozesse in Y/Y`-Mikrostrukturen einkristalliner Superlegierungen: Einfluss von Temperatur und Legierungselementen (Erik Bitzek, WW1)
  • Einkristalline Erstarrung mit verbesserter Mikrostruktur (Carolin Körner, WW2)
  • Additive Fertigung einkristalliner Superlegierung. (Carolin Körner, WW2)
  • Multikriterielle Berechnung optimaler Zusammensetzungen einkristalliner Superlegierungen (Carolin Körner, WW2)
  • Hochtemperaturoxidation einkristalliner Superlegierungen – Frühstadien und Elementarmechanismen (Sannakaisa Virtanen, WW4)
  • Hochauflösende und in-situ Transmissionselektronenmikroskopie an einkristallinen Superlegierungen – Struktur und Eigenschaften von Defekten, Grenzflächen und Fremdphasen. (Erdmann Spiecker, WW9)

Also in the SFB “Synthetic Carbon Allotropes“, three chairs / professors are represented with subprojects:

  • Design and Assembly of Carbon-Allotrope-Based Devices (Marcus Halik, WW5)
  • Opto-Electronic Properties of Semiconducting Carbon Allotrope Hetero-Junction Composites: Towards “All-Carbon Allotrope Architecture” Devices (Christoph Brabec, WW6)
  • Aberration-Corrected High Resolution and in situ Transmission Electron Microscopy of Carbon Allotropes and Related Device Structures (Erdmann Spiecker, WW9)

In addition, the DFG has approved new Collaborative Research Centers, including the SFB “Structural and Chemical Atomic Complexity – From Defective Phase Diagrams to Material Properties” (Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Sandra Korte-Kerzel of the RWTH Aachen University), in which the department is represented by Prof. Dr. Erik Bitzek from the Department of General Material Properties (WW1), as well as the SFB 1411 „Produktgestaltung disperser Systeme“ (Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Peukert, head of the the Institute of Particle Technology, FAU). The Chair of Micro- and Nanostructure Research (WW9, Prof. Dr. Erdmann Spiecker) is majorly involved in the SFB 1411.
