Earlier this year, Dominic Bartels published his work on in-situ modification of case-hardening steel. He continues these efforts in his recent work “PBF-LB/M of Low-Alloyed Steels: Bainite-like Microstructures despite High Cooling Rates”. It focusses on the processing of this group of steels using ...

Last year, Tim Russwurm showed that “Flame Luminesce in an Optically Accessible Engine with an Active Fuelled Pre-Chamber Ignition System” is a suitable detection technique for ignition and combustion processes. By monitoring the inside of an engine cylinder with a high speed camera he gained insigh...

To monitor the material’s topography in laser machining, optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a promising imaging technique, which goes beyond the state-of-the-art methods like laser triangulation. In his latest publication, Thomas Will identified relevant Features for image processing of OCT image...

Accurate knowledge of thermophysical properties of working fluids in chemical and energy engineering is necessary for the proper design or optimization of apparatuses and processes. This aspect is linked to the subject area Thermophysical Property Research dealt within the research activities of the...

In recent years, powder- and beam-based additive manufacturing processes have successfully established in the fabrication of highly individualized, geometrically complex components. Generating functional components for series production places the highest demands on the robustness of the processes, ...

Without knowing core parameters of a process, there is not much guidance for optimizing the process itself or its outcome. This also applies to the synthesis of functional nanoparticles. In recent years and decades, the importance and utilization of such nanoparticles in scientific, medical and indu...

The laser is a universal tool in materials processing. Focusing a high-power laser to a single spot allows various applications like welding and laser-based additive manufacturing. Heating and consequent melting of the material mainly drives these processes in which the laser beam acts as a heat sou...

After her study on material science, Marion Merklein received a PhD in mechanical engineering. Her PhD thesis is about laser forming of aluminum alloys and the influence of the laser forming process on the materials‘ microstructure and mechanical characteristics. In 2006 she finished her habilita...
