The Institute for Applied Materials - Material Process Technology at a Glance

Head:         N.N.


The Institute for Material Process Technology with more than 80 employees develops and processes materials to mature components. Our research activities extend over areas of fundamental research to the development of marketable products on behalf of industry. Our core competence lies in the materials processing technology for ceramics, metals, and plastics, above all on the microscale and nanoscale.

The Institute consists of the following departments:

Head: Dr. R. Knitter


Fundamental and applied research for the development of ceramic materials, molding processes, and components. Investigation of a number of scientific issues related to powder synthesis, powder processing, molding, and thermal process technology.


Head: Dr. J. Konys


Studies with regard to reactor safety research, the corrosion of materials in gases, aqueous media, and liquid metals, and adequate corrosion protection measures as well as materials studies for reactor safety. Development of processes for the fabrication of metal microstructures.


Material and Process Development
Head: Prof. Dr. T. Hanemann


Process development and experimentation technology, fundamental research and application-oriented technology for the primary molding of microcomponents from polymers, metals, and ceramics, and design studies for components of future fusion power plants. Structured sensitive an functional thin films by means of R.F. magnetron sputtering. Characterization: XPS, (UPS,AES), RGA, FE-SEM, ellipsometry.
