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.

 

FAU-Professoren Grimm und Wasserscheid koordinieren Entwicklung einer bayerischen Wasserstoffstrategie Wasserstoff gilt als Energieträger der Zukunft. Als am häufigsten auf der Erde vorkommendes Element hat er das Potenzial, als Energiespeicher und Brennstoff, in Mobilität und Industrie auf klimafr...

“The fourth International Symposium on Atomistic and Multiscale Modeling of Mechanics and Multiphysics” ISAM4 2019 which was co-organized by the co-spokesperson of FRASCAL, EAM Member Prof. Erik Bitzek, took place from 5th to 8th of August at Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. In the...

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...
