Helmholtz Alliance – Liquid Metal Technologies (LIMTECH)

International Collaboration

Scientific Coordinator: Dr. Gunter Gerbeth
Coordinating Helmholtz-Centre: Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR)
Additional Helmholtz-Centres:
  • Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
  • Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ)
  • German Aerospace Center (DLR)
Helmholtz-external Partners involved: Technical University Dresden (TUD), TU Bergakademie Freiberg (TUBAF), Technical University Ilmenau (TUI), Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), Georg-August-University Göttingen (UG), RWTH Aachen (RWTH), University of Potsdam (UP), Institute of Physics of the University of Latvia (IPUL), Coventry University (CU), UK

Key activities: high-temperature energy conversion systems, new kinds of liquid metal batteries, production of solar-grade silicon, carbon-dioxide-free production of hydrogen, liquid metal targets in modern neutron or particle sources and transmutation systems, casting of steel and light metals, welding and soldering processes, to basic laboratory experiments with relevance to liquid metal cooled systems, materials processing as well as to geo- and astrophysics.
