Review Advanced Material Characterization Technologies on the Market

It’s vital that scientists select the most appropriate instrument for their needs - to ensure they can precisely and cost-effectively characterize samples. The instrument selection process often involves choosing an instrument that offers the sensitivity and resolution they require for sample analysis. Plus, the instrument must be easy-to-operate and maintain, with minimal downtime.  instance, material scientists need to be able to explore material in as much detail as possible, locate and investigate regions of interest within a large sample, and effectively characterize large three-dimensional volumes

Microscopy is necessary for us to evaluate our layered systems [for solar cells].

The objective of my group is to work on new, ambitious and interdisciplinary ideas to trigger improved failure resistant material designs for industrial applications. Correlative Microscopy and Artificial Intelligence-Based Approaches are developed and utilized for efficient analysis and to gain a full understanding of the underlying structure-property relationship.

Researcher at the Materials Center Leoben Forschung GmbH

Multimodal Microscopy

Paired with AI Boosting Material Performance

Roland Brunner's working group “Material and Damage Analytics” at the MCL is focussing on the development and utilization of advanced image-based methods (XCT, synchrotron nano-tomography, FIB-tomography, neutron-tomography, FESEM etc.) as well as on correlated imaging workflows.   The group has a strong focus on materials for microelectronics and energy storage.

Although nanocrystalline metallic alloy thin films provide a variety of interesting properties especially for engineering applications there are some challenges which need to be solved. A big drawback concerns the generation of residual stresses evolving during the deposition process, limiting their performance.

Here, particularly the understanding of the stress evolution with respect to the occurrence of tensile and compressive stress within the thin film is of high importance for his group.

In general, the material microstructure impacts the material characteristics. Therefore, a profound knowledge of the underlying structure-property relationships is crucial for Roland Brunner and his group.
