German / Russian partner institutions
Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources - Institute for Crystallography
The topics in research and studies are the structures and properties of crystalline matter which find application in different important fields of technology. Particular interest is on the influence of crystalline defects and irregularities and their influence on the material and device performance. The Institute for Crystallography has expertise in the fields of crystal growth and the investigation of structural quality by different X-ray diffraction techniques and synchrotron topography.
