Welcome to the Laboratory of Metal Physics and Technology (LMPT), which is part of the Department of Materials at ETH Zurich. The LMPT carries out research and teaching in areas ranging from basic science to technology, mostly in metals-related areas. It is headed by Jörg F. Löffler, and is made up of physicists, materials scientists, and chemists from all around the world.
LMPT’s aim is to develop new metallic materials, and to find and explore novel phenomena in metal physics and technology via detailed materials analysis and modeling. Research focuses in particular on (i) bulk metallic glasses, (ii) metallic biomaterials, (iii) magnetic alloys, and (iv) modern aspects of metallurgy. Teaching relates to the fundamentals of materials science and materials physics, where it is especially important for us to create a basis for life-long learning.
I hope to illustrate you on these webpages that we are excited in performing research and teaching within our branch of science.
My best wishes on behalf of LMPT,
Jörg F. Löffler
