Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We wish you a Merry Christmas and look forward to a new year full of exciting research.

As usual, our Christmas card shows the combination of Winter wonderland and scientific content. We are happy to present in 2022: A scanning electron micrograph of dendrites in a TiFe alloy at 700x magnification in combination with Christmas trees, which are composed of many small triangles. These triangles can be found in our updated research program. Materials research for future sustainable technologies plays a major role in it. That is why we have consciously integrated the topic SUSTAINABILITY centrally along with our established topics QUANTUM - FUNCTION - NANO. In this way, we would like to contribute to the best of all possible worlds - in keeping with the spirit of the Leibniz Association.
