Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden e.V. joins iia

The iia is pleased to welcome Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden e.V.  as its newest member.

The IPF is a publicly funded research institute. As a Leibniz Institute, it receives its basic funding equally from the federal and state governments. The institute operates as a registered non-profit organization. The IPF’s holistic materials research encompasses synthesis, characterization, theory and simulation of polymers and their interactions, as well as their processing into materials for high-tech applications. The control of interfacial properties and processes is of particular importance in this context. Together with partners, especially in Dresden and at the Leibniz Association, the institute thus addresses key questions in the fields of resources, health and information.

In the field of irradiation technology, the research group “Electron-induced material modification” is active in the first stages along the process from the material through the material to the final product. The focus is on holistic, application-oriented research and development of new functional polymer materials based on petrochemical and renewable raw materials. Starting from commercially available raw materials, an application-oriented modification and functionalization of bulk and/or surfaces with the help of sustainable electron beam technology should lead to the targeted adjustment of properties. In this regard, the “electron-induced material modification” research group is developing material-process-structure relationships in order to meet the complex requirements of industrial applications.
