Combinatorial and high-throughput methods for materials discovery
Alfred Ludwig, Ruhr-Universitšt Bochum, Bochum, Germany
Discovery of materials is a key challenge in materials science: e.g. new materials for the sustainable production/storage/conversion of energy carriers are necessary to improve existing and to enable future energy systems. Combinatorial synthesis and processing of thin-film materials libraries is combined with high-throughput characterization to enable efficient materials discovery and optimization. The obtained results for up to quinary systems are visualized in the form of composition-processing-structure-function diagrams, interlinking compositional data with structural and functional properties. The talk will cover and discuss examples from intermetallic and oxidic (multi)functional material systems.
