Our R&D areas comprise:
- High temperature materials for applications in power plants (particularly thermal barrier coatings for gas turbines, protective coatings against abrasion and corrosion, ceramic matrix composites)
- Ceramic gas separation membranes for energy efficient processes
- Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and electrolysis cells (SOEC) for the generation of gaseous fuels
- Low- and high temperature solid state batteries exhibiting high safety standards and stability for stationary and mobile applications.
In all R&D activities the institute takes advantage of many years of experience in the fields of synthesis and processing of powders for layered and bulk materials, as well as numerous coating methods. State-of-the-art equipment of industrial standards are available in the institute.
As a conclusion the core competences of the institute IEK-1 are the development of reliable ceramic layered systems and composite materials for the energy sector.

€ 46 Million for Laboratory Platform HEMF
Jülich, 29 July 2015 – The Helmholtz Senate has resolved to set up a large-scale infrastructure for the synthesis and development of novel material systems for energy conversion and storage. The total volume will be € 46 million between 2016 and 2020. The creation of the Helmholtz Energy Materials Foundry (HEMF) will be coordinated by Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB). Five other Helmholtz centres will be involved in the concept and setup: the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Forschungszentrum Jülich, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG), and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The new platform HEMF will also be available to external user groups from universities and non-university institutes both within Germany and abroad, as well as to industry..
