Organization profile

The researchers in the CRC have expertize in the areas of aqueous corrosion, high temperature corrosion, batteries and fuel cells. Over the years their interests have involved diverse technical issues, such as the influence of surface morphology on film growth, stresses and fracture in thin oxide films (including both high-temperature and ambient-temperature films), electronic and optical properties of thin oxide films, and oxidation and corrosion of alloys at high temperatures. Currently, aqueous corrosion, miniature fuel cells and lithium batteries are the primary areas of research interest.
