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.

 

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...

Die Physiker Andre Greim und Konstantin Novoselov entdeckten 2004 in Manchester das erste zweidimensionale Material: Graphen ist eine extrem dünne Schicht aus Kohlenstoff, die sich durch besonders nützliche Eigenschaften auszeichnet. Sie ist transparent, leitfähig und dabei extrem stark und reißfest...

Iron oxide particles are very attractive to hydrocarbons In future, it could be possible to remove oil spills on the surface of the ocean by using magnets. An interdisciplinary group of researchers at FAU led by Prof. Dr. Marcus Halik has developed functionalised iron oxide particles that can attra...
