This is the story of three teams of Empa-scientists, who boldly go where no one has gone before. Team one explores strange new worlds (from a materials science perspective, of course), by building up crystals from a wild mixture of ingredients – so-called high-entropy materials. Team two invents a new, now patented process for 3D printing as well as a strange transistor with a kind of memory effect. Team three faces countless obstacles while tackling scaling up processes for the industrial production of solid-state batteries.
