Originating from the very successful Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials (2007-2019), the FAU Competence Center Engineering of Advanced Materials (FAU EAM) was established as research center at FAU in April 2022 to unite existing structures within the FAU Key Research Priority ‘New Materials and Processes’ with the aim to continuously develop fundamental research methods and provide high-class infrastructure.

FAU EAM, with the existing competence, will continue to act as nucleus for and backbone of new research initiatives and as hub for worldwide visible excellence in materials and process research. Therefore, a close research collaboration and mutual cross-fertilization of scientific knowledge will be established with the FAU Profile Center New Materials and Processes (FAU NMP).

Competence Centers have a cross-sectional function and provides expertise and support from basic research to the development of methods and instrumentation for the entire range of research carried out at FAU. An overview of all FAU profile, research and competence centers can be found on the FAU Research profile website.



This image illustrates the crack pattern that emerges as a suspension dries. The system consists of interconnected particles held together by capillary bridges, which, upon evaporation, result in the formation of cracks. This simulation was programmed so that the arbitrary arrangement of the evapora...
