Self-healing coating made of corn starch makes small scratches disappear through heat

25-Mar-2019

Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again. Superficial ...

Conductive metal-polymer inks for inkjet printing

20-Mar-2019

The INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials presents hybrid inks for inkjet printing that contain metal nanoparticles coated with conductive polymers. The inks can be formulated in water and in other polar solvents and are suitable to print conductive structures on a range of substrates without ...

New breathing material lubricates itself when needed

Like the earthworm

15-Nov-2018

Earthworms are always clean, even if they come from moist, sticky soil. They owe this to a dirt-repellent, lubricating layer, which forms itself again and again on its skin. Researchers at INM have now artificially recreated this system of nature: They developed a material with a surface ...

Researchers develop a solid material with mobile particles that react to the environment

12-Sep-2018

Inside most materials, little is moving. But a new “active nanocomposite” is teeming with motion: small particles connect or separate, thus changing the color of the entire material. It was made by scientists of the Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken in an attempt to lend ...

Low haze structures for transparent flexible electrodes by electrospinning processes

19-Apr-2017

Flexible, transparent, and conductive electrodes (FTCE) are a key enabling technology for the new generation of flexible, printable and wearable electronics. The touchscreens and displays of the future will be curved and flexible and integrated into cars, phones, or medical technology. Tapping ...

Improved corrosion protection with flake-type zinc-phosphate particles

18-Apr-2017

Large quantities of steel are used in architecture, bridge construction and ship-building. Structures of this type are intended to be long-lasting. Furthermore, even in the course of many years, they should not lose any of their qualities regarding strength and safety. For this reason, the steel ...

Cooperation with Namibia underway

Natural resources as a basis for new materials

27-Feb-2017

The INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials officially began its collaborative effort with the University of Namibia (UNAM) by holding a kick-off workshop. The aim of the joint project, NaMiComp, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, is to ...

State-of-the-art operating controls with elastic circuits

19-Apr-2016

Industry and product designers have a strong interest in being able to install electrical circuits such as display elements or operating controls even on the shaped surfaces of electronic appliances. Now, in the Optical Materials department at INM – Leibniz-Institute for New Materials, this aim ...

Flake-like nanoparticles offer reliable rust protection

15-Apr-2016

Large quantities of steel are used in architecture, bridge construction and ship-building. Structures of this type are intended to be long-lasting. In particular, the steel is attacked by oxygen in the air, water vapor and salts. Various techniques are used to prevent the corrosive substances ...

New hybrid inks permit printed, flexible electronics without sintering

15-Apr-2016

Research scientists at INM - Leibniz Institute for New Materials have combined the benefits of organic and inorganic electronic materials in a new type of hybrid inks. This allows electronic circuits to be applied to paper directly from a pen, for example. The electronics of the future will be ...
