Congratulations to our long-time employee Lennart Leich, who successfully completed his PhD on June 09, 2022.
From May 22 to 25, 2022, the conference "New Frontiers in Materials Design for Laser Additive Manufacturing" was held at Montabaur Castle in Rhineland-Palatinate as part of SPP2122 (New Materials for Additive Manufacturing). The LWT was represented by four participants and presented first results from a research project jointly conducted with the IAPK of RWTH Aachen University.
Hydrogen fuel presents a promising route towards a carbon-free energy source for vehicles – but the technology still faces challenges relating to storage. The paper „Exploring Steel Alloys for Hydrogen Storage Technology“ studies the capabilities and limitations of specialised steel alloys for heavily stressed components in high-pressure hydrogen storage systems.
A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES
A virtual tour through the different laboratories and rooms of our chair as well as the associated halls and the equipment located there can be found here.
The research focus of our chair lies in the new and further development of metallic materials with the inclusion of the relevant processes.
SUSTAINABLE AND INNOVATIVE
Our concept is characterized by innovative research under the responsibility for sustainable development and responsible use of energy and resources.
We have a diverse team of PostDocs, PhD students, student assistants supported by technical and administrative staff.
