Activities

Seminar of Martin Otto from Leibniz Institute, entitled “Optimisation of Fe-Mn-C steels for biodegradable vascular implant applications”. On May 23rd, 2024, at noon in the Auditorium.

Abstract: The demand for advanced clinical treatments for various soft and hard tissue injuries and diseases has led to the development of innovative biodegradable implant materials. Compared to their non-degrading counterparts, implants made of biodegradable polymers or metals degrade progressively

Seminar of Dr. Moumita Rana from Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, entitled “How Do Charge Carrier Transport and Microstructure Influence Solid-State Battery Performance: Solving the Jigsaw”. July 22nd, at noon in the Seminar Room.

Abstract: Solid state lithium ion batteries are promising as the next-generation energy storagesystem due to their high energy density, thermal stability, and volumetricminiaturization. Even though, the ionic conductivity of solid state electrolytes is oftenblamed to be the bottle neck of

Seminar by Prof. Morten Willatzen from the Beijing Institute of Nanoenergy and Nanosystems, Chinese Academy of Sciences, entitled ‘Triboelectric Nanogenerators and Quantum-Mechanical Modeling of Contact Electrification’. Scheduled for March 20th, 2024

Abstract A general theory of triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) is presented for an arbitrary geometric setup consisting of two electrodes, a fixed dielectric, and a moving dielectric [1]. The two dielectric materials have opposite charges. Optimization of power output is computed
