The "Otto Schott Institute of Materials Research" (OSIM) is a cross-faculty institute of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy and the Faculty of Chemistry and Earth Sciences of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Our research focuses on the correlation between structure and properties of different classes of materials as a function of their synthesis and application conditions, with a special emphasis on glass. The knowledge gained in this way is used in the design of new materials and the manufacture of tailor-made components and products using new methods of material characterization.

Research topics include:

  • Glass and glass ceramics
  • Ceramic materials
  • Metals and Alloys
  • Polymers and composites
  • Nanostructured materials and surfaces
  • Materials for optics
  • Biomaterials
  • Materials for energy and environmental technology
  • Material processing with lasers
  • Modelling and simulations
