Fraunhofer Center HTL characterizes materials and determines material properties such as composition, microstructure, and application properties. If necessary, application-specific characterization methods are developed and customers are advised on suitable processes for process monitoring and quality control. The focus of material testing at the HTL is non-destructive, mechanical, and thermal measurements on ceramics and composite materials. Numerous process-related testing methods are also available for material analysis. The evaluation of measurement data focuses on performance, service life, and reliability.
