Functional Particle Systems / Interdisciplinary Center for functional Particle Systems (IC FPS) - www.fps.fau.de
Focus of EAM is the development of novel methods for particle fabrication. It is essential that the fabrication of the building blocks in sufficient quantities is possible even under industrially relevant conditions. The main research fields are production of particles (gas and liquid phase synthesis, spraying, precipitation/crystallization, comminution), processing of nanoparticles to nanomaterials, structure formation and product characterization of particles and interfaces.The IC FPs develops innovative methods and processes to generate, formulate and apply particles (building blocks) with tailored size, shape and structure as well as customized surface properties. Based on the cross-sectional topic of particles, FPS brings together chemical engineering, materials science, chemistry, physiscs and medicine.
