Max-Planck-Institut für Chemische Physik fester Stoffe: The Max Planck Institute investigates compounds rich in metal

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids dedicates itself to the experimental and theoretical investigation of compounds rich in metal with novel chemical and physical characteristics. A precondition for the resolution of questions is the close collaboration between the three research fields of Solid States Physics, Inorganic Chemis­­try and Chemical Metal Science as well as the intensive interaction with and between the competence and junior groups. The flexible and multi disciplinary structure of the institute allows for the fast and efficient accumulation of current topics into project groups, into which scientists can introduce their re­­­­spective know-how across the groups. The primary research fields of the in­­stitute are currently oriented to­­wards:
• Quantum critical phenomena
• Chemical bonding in intermetallic com­­pounds
• Superconductivity and magnetism
• Structure relationships in compounds rich in metal
• Phase equilibrium, phase transformation
• Development of new synthesis tech­­niques
• New material classes
• Thermoelectrica
• Biomineralization
The institute is actively integrated in national and international networks with its research focal points.
