Dr. Hans Kungl
Division head
Forschungzentrum Jülich GmbH

Hans Kungl studied mechanical engineering with focus on turbomachinery at the University of Karlsruhe, Gemany, where he received his diploma in 1999. After two years working on a project on thermal barrier coatings at the IKM in Karlsruhe, he joined the ferroelectrics group at this facility. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Karlsruhe for a thesis on strain mechanisms in morphotropic PZT, su-pervised by Prof. Dr. Michael Hoffmann and Prof. Dr. Juergen Roedel in 2005. In subsequent work as a PostDoc, he focused on processing, defect stoichiometry, and electro-mechanical behaviour of PZT and lead-free ferroelectrics. Since 2013, he has been head of the department of Functional Materials and Components of the Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK-9) directed by Prof. Dr. Ruediger-A. Eichel at Forschungszentrum Julich. His current research topics are processing and electrochemical analysis of lithium-ion batteries, solid state electrolytes and metal-air batteries, and electrochemistry of CO2 reduction.
