Research Group Physics of Advanced Materials

Experimental Physics of Complex Materials

Applied and fundamental research on flow behaviour, mechanical and thermal properties of plastics, rubbers, powders and other complex materials.

Research at the LPM

Tandem thin films, the future of solar cells

The LPM applies macroscopic experimental techniques to investigate thermal and mechanical properties of matter. The group has active research programs investigating flow behaviour and phase transitions of polymer and rubber compounds, flow induced crystallization and ordering of complex fluids, rheological properties of granular media, pastes and biological samples.
