Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden (IFW)

Dresden, Germany


The Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden e. V. – in short IFW Dresden – is a non-university research institute and a member of the Leibniz Association. The IFW Dresden employs approximately 600 people and focuses on the training of young scientists besides enhancing fundamental and applied research development. At the highest international level, the IFW Dresden operates modern materials science on a scientific basis and makes the obtained results useful for the economy. The complex and interdisciplinary research work within the IFW Dresden is carried out by five scientific institutes, which are supported by a highly developed technical infrastructure. Two of them will take part in BeMAGIC: Institute for Metallic Materials (IMW) and Institute for Complex Materials (IKM). An international and interdisciplinary research team lead by Dr. Karin Leistner will conduct the synthesis and characterization of biocompatible magnetoelectric and magneto-ionic nanostructures and thin films.
