Hybrid Materials Systems

Profile

Wms Profil Banner Klein

Research interests and approaches in the Hybrid Materials Systems Group focus on synthesis, characterisation, and modelling of nanostructured metallic materials. Of particular interest is the role of surfaces or interfaces – such as grain boundaries, free surfaces or metal-electrolyte interfaces – in controlling the overall macroscopic materials behaviour and the microstructural evolution or stability. Research subjects in that context include the mechanics, thermodynamics and electrochemistry of interfaces and of interface controlled materials, mechanical behaviour and deformation mechanisms in nanoscale materials, and characterisation by scattering techniques.

The Hybrid Materials Systems group cooperates closely with the Institute of Materials Physics and Technology at Hamburg University of Technology.
