Dr. Hans Kungl
Division head
IEK-9
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.
