From Molecules

Transcending Boundaries and Structures

to Materials

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.

  • EAM Call for Science Sets Sail

    17. January 2017 Drawing on mankind’s earliest spirit of adventure, FAU created “Science Sets Sail” as a trip of scientific discovery on the Baltic Sea. FAU researchers and their guests from the Baltic region and beyond will forge new ideas together on the sailing ship ‘Thor Heyerdahl.’ EAM is one of the nine... more »

  • Picture of the month: Single-walled TiO2 nanotubes for improved lithium storage

    01. January 2017 Nanostructured anode materials are greatly demanded for electrochemical energy storage systems based on lithium ion intercalation devices. At EAM, we develop novel TiO2 nanostructures for improved performance in battery, solar-cell and water-splitting applications. Self-organized anodic TiO2... more »

December 2016 The Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials (EAM) is pleased to announce the ICEAM2017, the International Congress Engineering of Advanced Materials, which will take place at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) from 10 – 12 October 2017 in Erlangen,... more »

  • Nachwuchsförderung im Bereich Nanotechnologie

    06. December 2016 Die Europäische Kommission fördert seit kurzem das Marie-Curie Trainings-Netzwerk ELENA (Low energy ELEctron driven chemistry for the advantage of emerging NAnofabrication methods), an dem 13 Universitäten, vier Forschungsinstitute und fünf Unternehmen aus 13 europäischen Ländern beteiligt sind und... more »

  • Picture of the month: Tilting crystals in biomimetic calcium carbonate thin films

    30. November 2016 Biominerals are extremely tough. This arises due to an ingenious hierarchical design combined with a high crystalline order which forms by a non-classical crystallization of an amorphous precursor. In some species, this solid-amorphous to crystalline transformation generates crystal lattice tilting... more »
