ABOUT US

We are carrying out innovative research on the multiscale strength and fracture properties of structural and functional materials with the aim to establish long-term reliability and durability. We combine experimental research, evaluating nanoscale properties with atomic force and transmitting electron microscopy, and in-situ observation of fracture with a high-speed camera, and theoretical analysis using finite element methods and molecular dynamics. We work within an interdisciplinary framework to develop and evaluate new materials.
