Catalysts are of utmost relevance for the production of chemicals and energy storage with hydrogen. Researchers at the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy (HI ERN) and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now discovered that the formation of bubbles in ...

The Institute of Biomaterials (WW7), Department of Materials Science and Engineering, organises a scientific symposium to celebrate the 60th birthday of the Head of Institute, Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, and his contributions to materials science and biomaterials. The symposium will take place in-p...

Have you ever spilled your cup of coffee? You may have noticed how the coffee dries into an intriguing stain with a bright centre and a dark ring encircling it. This “coffee ring” forms because the liquid evaporates faster at the edges, inducing a flow from the droplet interior towards the outsid...

Dr. habil. Paolo Moretti (Chair of Materials Simulation) received his habilitation certificate on Jan. 14, 2022 from the hand of Dean Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Andreas Paul Fröba. With this, he was granted the teaching qualification for the subject area of materials science. Topic of his habilitation...

Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, MAP Focal Subject Head and Head, Institute of Biomaterials at FAU, will receive an honorary doctorate from Åbo Akademi University, Turku, Finland. Prof. Boccaccini is conferred the title of Honorary Doctor of Philosophy in recognition of his successful research in biomateri...

A research group at FAU and the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy (HI ERN) have come up with a design aimed at significantly increasing the operational stability and life span of perovskite solar cells. Their design centres around a bilayer of polymers that protects the pero...

According to a new report that analyses citations of scientific publications, more than 200 researchers from FAU are among the top two percent of the most cited scientists worldwide. Citations are an important criterion to measure the impact of scientific research and describe how often an initial r...

In November 2021, MAP chair Prof. Nicolas Vogel was awarded the “Lehrpreis der Technischen Fakultät” (Teaching award of the Faculty of Engineering). According to the selection committee, the award reflects the excellent student evaluations of the courses given by Prof. Vogel over the last five years...

Prof. Erik Bitzek left FAU on 31 August 2021 to continue his research work in the field of microstructure & mechanics (Department Computational Materials Design) at the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research GmbH in Düsseldorf. The team and all those involved in the Elite Master's Programme "...
