Design of alloys and (nano-) composites


We develop novel structural and functional alloys as well as composites by combining computer simulations with sophisticated experiments. A special emphasize is on the design of alloys for additive manufacturing. Our activities cover mainly, but not exclusively, the following materials classes:

  • High-strength Ni, Al and Ti alloys and structural intermetallics (e.g γ-TiAl)
  • Oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) alloys and (nano-) composites
  • Precious metal alloys
  • Shape memory alloys
