Research in the areas of electromobility as well as stationary energy systems is a central theme at IWS in Dresden. Important contributions can be provided to battery fabrication processes based on the numerous IWS technology developments.
Coatings consisting of gaseous, liquid or solid, particulate starting materials are developed for customer-specific issues. The focus is among other things on modified surfaces and functional coatings for applications in battery technology.
The scientists focus their research on the development of optical-spectroscopical measuring technologies to characterize and to monitor gas phase processes by ppb trace gas, multi gas and aerosol analytics. Process studies as well as the development of analyzers and their process implementation are here of main interest. Additionally we offer characterization methods for porous substances as well as methods for layer and surface characterizations.
The increasing electrification of mobility also affects aviation. The battery is both a key technology and a bottleneck for all electrical flight applications. Its own weight significantly limits the range and payload of the aircraft.
