Custom-made high-performance materials are revolutionizing the world of electronics, optics, catalysis and lightweight construction. In Erlangen, materials science innovation starts at the atomic level and influences the entire process chain to achieve macroscopically visible results. Video

The Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials – Hierarchical Structure Formation for Functional Devices (EAM) is the only interdisciplinary research collaboration of its type in Germany to focus on the investigation of functional materials and their processing at all length scales. Its research centers on the fundamental and applied aspects of designing and creating novel high-performance materials. Situated at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) it is part of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments.

 

Nachgefragt bei EAM-Mitglied Prof. Dr. Erik Bitzek Wer Professor Erik Bitzek Detailverliebtheit unterstellt, liegt möglicherweise gar nicht so falsch: Der Werkstoffwissenschaftler von der FAU hat sich in seinem Beruf den Atomen verschrieben – und den Kräften, die zwischen ihnen wirken. Wir haben mi...

FAU researchers describe a further scenario for cluster formation Possibly one of the most intensively discussed topics in the field of physics is the effect of inelastic collapse in the dynamics of dissipative hard sphere systems, a particle model which is often used to simulate granular materials...

Researchers at FAU have developed a concept for controlling nanoparticles Researchers at the Chair of Organic Chemistry II at FAU have discovered that it is possible to control the optical and electronic properties of aluminium oxide nanoparticles, despite the fact that they are typically electro...

Prof. Dr. Marion Merklein in Senat der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft gewählt Großer Erfolg für die FAU: Die Ingenieurin Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Marion Merklein ist in den Senat der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) gewählt worden. Die Mitglieder des Senats beraten und beschließen über alle we...

Developing a method for discovering new chemical reactions Whether they are synthetic materials such as PET and Teflon, medicines or flavourings, life without synthetically produced compounds is barely conceivable in our everyday lives today. The chemical industry depends on efficient, long-term me...
