Max Planck and CMR cooperation

Scientists at Christian Michelsen Research are currently developing, together with colleagues from the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research (Germany), the Field Kelvin Probe (FKP). This FKP will enable contactless detection of hidden corrosion. Recently CMR projectleader for FKP, Florin Turcu, met Martin Stratmann, The President of the Max Planck Society.

Florin Turcu from CMR Science & Technology had the privilege of meeting Martin Stratmann at the Ebernburg castle in Bad Kreutznach. The GO-department of the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research gathered here for the annual internal workshop and CMR was invited to  the internal in order to present the Field Kelvin Probe.

This was particularly important since M. Stratmann is credited with the invention of the Scanning Kelvin Probe, which is  the precursor of the FKP. Besides FKP technicalities and the possibility to launch a large H2020 proposal to explore the many applications of the FKP, Florin and Martin  Stratmann considered an official visit to CMR  here in Bergen. This would be the first visit of a „Max Planck Gesellschaft“ president to Norway.
