More than the sum of ist parts...

The development of modern tailored composites and compounds depends on basic knowledge of their composition, their structure, their synthesis and their processing for each component. This previous history of a material influences the microstructure, the interface evolution and potential microstructure defects, for example grain size or morphology and, furthermore, the character of the composite's components, their volume contents, their constitution and their metallurgical affinity. These facts suggest the physical properties of a composite material - vice versa, it is possible to tailor composite’s material design. These are the main research topics of the Workgroup “Hybrid and Lightweight Materials” at IAM-WK, which emerged from the YIG “Hybrid Lightweight Design”.
