"Emerging Fields" funded project (moreProf. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini


The Institute for Biomaterials at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering started teaching and research activities on 1st October 2009 with the appointment of Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini (formerly at Imperial College London, UK), as Chair for Biomaterials.




Prof. Dr.  Erdmann Spiecker

The Electron Microscopy Group headed by Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Erdmann Spiecker was founded on 1st September 2008. In its research the electron microscopy group focuses on the developments of electron microscopy methods for investigation of functional and nanomaterials.

The group operates a laboratory with three transmission electron microscopes, among these the new aberration-corrected Titan3 80-300.

Besides its activities at the chair the group also represents the electron microscopy in the Center for Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy (CENEM), an interdisciplinary Center of the Cluster of Excellence "Engineering of Advanced Materials" (EAM).





Prof.Dr. Horst P. StrunkThe former Chair for Microcharacterisation under Prof. Dr. Horst P. Strunk does not exist anymore.
Prof. Dr. Horst Strunk now is interim professor in Stuttgart at Institute for Material Science.
