Meso- and Micromechanics
Applying self-developed test set-ups and experimental mechanics, we are capable of determining the material properties of samples with at least one dimension in the microscale. The testing of micro-parts is ...
We explain material behavior and predict material properties using computational and experimental methods based on solid-state physics and materials mechanics. Our ambition is to design structures, properties, and functions. We identify the effects of crystalline defects and microstructures on the macroscopic behavior of materials. This enables us to make effective and efficient use of material and energy ressources in order to achieve long-term improvements to technical systems.
