Institute of Metals Research

Research at the Laboratory of Metal Physics and Technology (LMPT) involves the synthesis and processing of novel nanostructured materials, bulk metallic glasses, light-metal alloys, and composites. Our group investigates magnetic, structural, mechanical, and thermophysical properties of these materials and probes the fundamental structure-property relationships. We further focus on experiments under extremely high gravitational accelerations, neutron scattering, synchrotron radiation, and process/alloy development for casting and forming. Recent research also concentrates on metal-containing systems for new functionalities and metallic materials for medical applications. »»

The Laboratory for Nanometallurgy carries out research and education in the field of metallurgy, in which at least one critical dimension is in the nanometer regime and significantly influences the behavior of materials. These dimensions can be external, where typical applications can be found in microelectronics and micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) or reflect some important internal length scale like the grain size or the precipitate spacing in alloys. »»
