Materials Science

The development of new materials is fundamental to innovation in the vast majority of industries. Novel composites and alloys, hybrid materials and superconductors, bio- and nanomaterials or smart materials, such as hydrogels and carbon nanotubes, have revolutionized numerous fields of technology. 

Today, materials science is a key technology for application areas that will shape our lives in the future: sustainable mobility, renewable energies, medical technology, automotive and aerospace industries, electrical industry, chemical industry, microelectronics and environmental protection.

Expertise

Our patent attorneys in the field of materials science have a broad technical knowledge and have advised clients extensively in the following areas: 

  • fiber composite materials for rotor blades
  • sound-reducing materials for vehicle parts
  • epoxy resin compositions for printed circuit boards
  • crystalline organic semiconductor materials
  • shape memory alloys
  • hollow fiber membranes for dialysis
  • porous foam materials from microfibrillated cellulose
  • silicone foams for wound care
  • artificial tissues
  • cell-populated nanocomposites for tissue regeneration
  • magnetoenzymatic liposome systems for targeted drug transport
  • and much more.

Concept

As a cross-sectional technology, material sciences are applied in various disciplines such as chemistry, physics, life sciences, mechanics and construction engineering. The firm's patent attorneys are specialized in all these fields and have completed relevant academic studies with doctoral degrees. They gained several years of industrial experience, continued scientific work and have relevant R&D experience. 

The wide range of these biographies allows for the teaming of several patent attorneys with completely different technical backgrounds, if required - and thus ensures optimal client service, especially in complex, interdisciplinary requirements.
