DFG Funding for Professor Jürgen Rödel


Materials scientists at the TU Darmstadt want to reinvent the material ceramics. To do this, they intervene in its atomic structure. The German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding this as part of a highly endowed Reinhart Koselleck project.

Prof. Jürgen Rödel

When you think of ceramics, you think of dishes or sharp knives. However, Professor Jürgen Rödel from the Department of Non-Metallic Inorganic Materials at TU Darmstadt believes that much more can be gained from the hard and brittle material than the huge selection of sensors or capacitors already known.
