Functional Materials

Prof. Peter Müller-Buschbaum

Research Field

We examine the physical fundamentals of material properties using scattering methods (neutrons-, x-ray and dynamic light scattering). The general goal of our research is to judge from the knowledge of the microscopic dynamics and structure for explaining the functional characteristics of condensed matter.

Organic Solar Cells for Space Applications
Organic solar cells have become a hot research topic in the last few years. The lightweight thin-film solar cells are of particular interest for space applications due to their exceptional power per mass, exceeding their inorganic counterparts by magnitudes. Recently, we performed the Organic and Hybrid Solar Cells In Space experiment (OHSCIS) and launched of organic solar cells to space for the first time. The mechanical and electronic design of the experiment aimed at maximizing the data collection rate and precise measurements. We showed that the organic solar cells operate in space conditions and produce reasonable power per area of up to 7 mW cm-2. Also during a phase being turned away from the sun, the solar cells produced power from collecting faint Sun-light scattered from Earth. Our results highlight the potential for near-Earth applications and deep space missions of these technologies. Soon a next space missing will come up and presently we are looking for an interested master student to join the exiting next flight of organic solar cells to space. The task will be to make new sets of organic solar cells and test them with the set-up. After the successful flight to space, the solar cell data need to be evaluated and analyzed in detail to learn from the space flight.

Plasma parameters of a PVD coating process for U-Mo fuels
Starting from November 2021, the working group “High Density Nuclear Fuels” at the research reactor FRM II is looking for a B.Sc. student / working student / internship Plasma parameters of a PVD coating process for U-Mo fuels The working group “High Density Nuclear Fuels” at the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) is working on the qualification of newly-developed high-density nuclear fuels in Europe. The most promising candidates are a metallic uranium-molybdenum alloy fuel (U-Mo) or high-density uranium silicide (U3Si2), both using aluminum-based cladding. Therefore, scientists in the fields of physics, chemistry, engineering, physical technology and computer science are working intensively together on fuel fabrication technologies, the determination of material properties as well as the irradiation behavior of such fuels. For metallic uranium-molybdenum fuel systems a diffusion barrier is established using Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) in order to prevent intermixing. The scope of this project is to do a parameter study on a PVD device regarding the ion and electron bombardment during the coating of the substrate material in order to get a better understanding of the growing layer. This will be used to better control the growth structure of the zirconium coatings in a way that it acts as a good diffusion barrier and also withstands the mechanical stresses of subsequent cladding applications. The practical work may also include sample preparation and polishing techniques. Best suited are students studying physics, engineering, materials science or comparable studies. We are looking forward to receive your application. Further information on the fuel development at FRM II can be found at https://www.frm2.tum.de/en/fuel-development For questions and applications, please contact Bruno Baumeister (bruno.baumeister@frm2.tum.de; +49 89 289 13967) Christian Schwarz (christian.schwarz@frm2.tum.de; +49 89 289 14759) Framework conditions The tasks typically involve working in radiation protection areas with open handling of radioactive materials such as uranium. The high security standard of FRM II generally requires a security clearance according to the German atomic law.
