ab initioCopyright: © MCh
Ab initio calculations of crystal structures, charge density distributions etc. are carried out on our own High Performance Computing Cluster, HPC for short, hosted by the IT Center of RWTH Aachen University.
For extensive calculations we have access to the JARA HPC Cluster jointly operated by Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University within the JARA Alliance.
Combinatorial Thin Film SynthesisCopyright: © MCh
At MATERIALS CHEMISTRY several lab scale thin film deposition systems are available. The layout of these systems is continuously adopted to the scientific questions adressed by our development team, covering construction, control systems, power supply, and pulse generation.
- UHV systems for combinatorial HPPMS thin film synthesis
- Arc system for reactive sputtering
For materials design in industrial scale commerecial deposition systems are available:
- CemeCon CC800/9 HPPMS
- CemeCon CC800/8
Consistent with the scientific approach outlined in our research philosophy MATERIALS CHEMISTRY maintains comprehensive equipment for spatially resolved materials analysis and chracterization for both, research projects and service measurements.
Part of the equipment is integral element of the virtual materials analysis lab StrucMatLab.Copyright: © Materials Chemistry
