CRC/TRR 270: Hysteresis Design of Magnetic Materials for Efficient Energy Conversion

New magnets for future energy technologies

From strong, permanent magnets for wind turbines to electrical engines and materials for magnetic cooling: new functional materials are an indispensable component of a successful energy transition and a low-emission future. On 1 January 2020, TU Darmstadt and the University of Duisburg-Essen jointly launched the new Collaborative Research Centre CRC 270 ‘HoMMage’. It will be funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) with around 12 million euros for an initial period of four years.
