JARA – Jülich Aachen Research Alliance

Focusing Expertise - Shaping the Future
In the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich pool their outstanding expertise in six research sections. These common efforts open up

new research opportunities and facilitate projects that would not be attainable for either of the partners on their own. Furthermore, their attention is always focused on the grand challenges facing society.

JARA | ENERGY

Modern materials are often exposed to extraordinary loads. In order to achieve the best results in their field of application, they must combine a wide variety of characteristics.  For example, metals used in an aircraft engine must be highly stable and heat-resistant at the same time as being easy to shape. MAX-phase materials combine these and other qualities. In order to be able to use MAX phases industrially, scientists of the team around JARA-ENERGY member Prof. Olivier Guillon have developed a new manufacturing process.
