International Summer School on Aerogels

Visit to 7th International Summer School on Aerogels

Cologne, 20 to 23th September 2022 - Doctoral researchers of ITUN participated on the 7th International Summer School on Aerogels at DLR (German Aerospace Center). Scientific presentations and many practical courses were given to provide a wide overview but also a deep insight into the versatile material of aerogel. Intensive lab courses guided by DLR scientists gave the paticipants the opportunity to do aerogel syntheses by their own and view common characterization techniques from close. The ITUN researchers will transfer the insights from the four day stay at DLR especially into ongoing projects in the field of supercritical drying of aerogels and the developement of aerogel-based Raman sensors.
