The department of Aerogels and Aerogel Composites of the Institute of Materials Research at the German Aerospace Center is organizing the online workshop 6th International Online Summer School on Aerogels in Cologne, Germany, on September 16th, 2021.
Aerogels are nano-structured open porous materials synthesized via a sol-gel process from organic or inorganic precursors. They most often combine such extraordinary properties as high porosity (up to 99.9%), ultralow density (50-200 kg/m3), high surface area (up to 2000 m2/g) and a very low thermal conductivity (0.005-0.020 W/mK). With these unique properties, they are predestined for a broad range of applications including thermal and acoustic insulation, light weight construction, supercapacitors, batteries or catalyst materials.
Within this online workshop, students, PhD students, postdocs as well as experienced scientists from research and industry are invited to get introduced to the fascinating properties of different types of aerogels and will get the opportunity to get in deeper discussion with the experts on this field.
The department of Aerogels and Aerogel Composites at the German Aerospace Center is cooperatively organizing this online workshop with the University of Cologne (UzK), the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), the Paris-Lodron University of Salzburg, the Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research in Würzburg (ZAE) and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA) in Dübendorf, Switzerland.
