Outstanding materials research at the Research Centre for Materials and Process Engineering

 

Several researchers from various disciplines at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences have joined forces at the Research Centre for Materials and Process Engineering, a research centre dedicated to materials and process engineering, to put the development of plastics and building materials on a new and more sustainable footing. The spectrum of applications ranges from ham packaging and sticky tape to aircraft components and civil engineering projects with lightweight concrete. A joint project was commended by the State of Hesse as one of the best in the Distr@l funding programme. (Text: Christina Janssen)

Top research by Prof. Dr. Dirk Geyer [DE]

 

In the Laboratory for Optical Diagnostics and Renewable Energies (ODEE) at h_da led by Professor Dirk Geyer, doctoral researcher Konrad Koschnick has developed an experimental setup that is unique in this form worldwide: it combines a new chemical synthesis method with a highly complex laser measurement technique. The aim is to study how to produce the base materials required in large quantities by the chemical industry in a sustainable way - an extremely sophisticated technology. (Text: Christina Janssen)

Prof. Dr. Weinmann on Alzheimer's diagnostics

 

At the present time, around 1.8 million people in Germany are living with dementia, most of whom have Alzheimer’s disease. According to forecasts, the numbers will rise significantly unless there is a medical breakthrough in the next few years. Still, the first drug that specifically targets the protein deposits in the brain that are characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease was approved in the USA last year. However, the new drug only helps if the disease is detected at an early stage. (Text: Christina Janssen)
