Collaborative Research Centre 926

Prof. Hasse is Speaker of DFG Collaborative Research Centre 926 - Microscale Morphology of Component Surfaces (MICOS).

Component surfaces have a significant influence on its function and its lifetime. With an interdisciplinary cooperation between mechanical engineering and process engineering as well as surface physics the CRC 926 investigates the scientific basics of the creation, characterization and application for surfaces of components with a specific functionality. The research activities focus on processes and methods on the microscale. The morphology of component surfaces is the central topic of the CRC 926. A surface is defined by its geometrical shape (topography) as well as its physical and chemical properties. One important intention of the CRC 926 is the investigation of the relation between surface creation, morphology and properties (SCMP), which allows an immediate conclusion from the parameters of the production processes to the service properties. Vice versa the knowledge of the SCMP enables optimal design of a component as a function of its requirements.
