Forschungsbericht 2022

Material- und Röntgenphysik M-2

Leitung: Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Patrick Huber

Institut auf TORE

The institute was newly founded in 2020. Previous publications and projects can be found in Institute of Materials Physics and Technology M-22. Our research group at Technische Universität Hamburg TUHH and the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY engages in fundamental experimental research in condensed-matter physics and on novel functional materials. We explore experimentally the multiscale interplay of structure, dynamics and function of matter. We profit from the vivid and inspiring Natural and Materials Science environment of the Hamburg metropolitan area, encompassing Hamburg University (UHH), the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht for Coastal and Materials Research (HZG), and the European X-Ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL). We are a member of the Center for Intergrated Multiscale Materials Systems CIMMS, the Centre for Advanced Materials (ZHM Hamburg) and of the Collaborative Research Initiative SFB 986 “Tailor-Made Multi-Scale Materials Systems M³”. Our research projects focus on how condensed matter behaves in extreme spatial confinement, most prominently in nanoporous media, and on how to employ this fundamental knowledge for the design of advanced materials.
