The Postdoctoral scientist Malgorzata Wlodarczyk-Biegun from the program division Dynamic Biomaterials at the INM has been distinguished with the L’Oréal-Unesco „For Women in Science“ Award.
The Humboldt Award winner at the INM, Professor Robert McMeeking, is to receive the newly-created Humboldt Alumni Award. Together with the INM, he intends to use the award money of €25,000 to bring about the international networking initiative MePAG (Virtual Humboldt Cluster on the Mechanics and Physics of Adhesion and Grip).
Research scientists at INM developed a special type of flake-type-shaped metal-phosphate particles: They show improved passivation ability and improved diffusion barrier against corrosive substances. Besides zinc phosphate also newly developed manganese phosphate flakes are available.
