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.

Transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) triggered large interest in condensed matter research since these twodimensional materials exhibit electronic states ascribed to 'topological invariants' of the particular crystal structure and facinating properties when prepared in the single-layer limit. S...

Zwischgold is an ultra-thin bilayer metal leaf that has been developed in medieval times as an alternative to gold leaves. It consists of a Au top-layer on Ag leaf. While it had been believed for a long time that zwischgold was a cheap mock of real leaf gold, it is more likely that it was often used...
