Cluster of Excellence
Engineering of Advanced Materials
Advanced methods for the analysis of materials and devices down to the atomic scale
Particles, structures and new materials are characterized on all length scale
Microscopic and analytical characterization methods on all length scales are of utmost importance for the design of new engineering materials in the Cluster of Excellence. The research Area A2 supports the design of materials by in situ investigation of local properties on length scales ranging from the atomic to the meso-scale. Materials, particles and systems are studied down to the molecular and atomic level including 3D characterization. The activities of research Area A2 focus on three complementary fields which closely work together:
The analytical capabilities in Erlangen have been strengthened by the newly founded Center for Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy (CENEM) including a new state-of-the art TEM Titan³with spherical aberration correction.
The analytical capabilities in Erlangen have been strengthened by the Center for Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy (CENEM), which was founded by the members of Research Area A2. It will help intensify the interdisciplinary research and develop structures for long term use of the instrumentation required for nanocharacterization of materials and strengthen interaction with industry.
