Prof. Dr. Jens-Uwe Sommer
Prof. Dr. Gert Heinrich

  • Models and methods of simulation of network structures with particular focus on  deformation processes
  • Development of physically consistent theoretical fundamentals of structure-poperty relations in functional and high-performance elastomers
  • Generation of networks and gels with functional properties (model networks, gels with actor/sensor properties, gels with physical crosslinkers)
  • Development and application-relevant technological characterization of novel elastomer composites for application in future energy-efficient mobility technologies
