Institute of Energy and Climate Research
Materials Synthesis and Processing (IEK-1)

Navigation and service

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.
