Προσωπικό Προφίλ

Claus Rebholz is Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Cyprus (UCY) and heads the Advanced Coatings Engineering Group. Hailing from the Danube valley in Southern Germany, he initially studied at the University of Applied Sciences Furtwangen in the Black Forest (with industrial placements in Germany and Japan), where he earned a Diploma/BSc (1993) in Materials and Surface Engineering. He subsequently moved to the UK and obtained MSc (1995) and PhD (2000) degrees from the University of Hull in Engineering Design and Manufacture.

Prof. Rebholz spent six years at the Robert Bosch Group, first as a Research & Development Executive Management Trainee in several research centres in Germany, Japan and the US (1998-2001) and then as a group leader & manager of a multidisciplinary profit centre in the area of laser materials processing in Stuttgart/Germany (2001-2004), before joining the faculty at UCY. His research interests span a wide range with a focus on the processing-structure-properties relation in tailor made functional materials for automotive, biomedical, energy and nanomanufacturing applications. Much of this work has been carried out collaborating with industry and other research groups across the world. Among his recognitions, Prof. Rebholz received a European Commission Marie Curie Excellence Team Leader Award for his work on nano-heater systems for thermal nanomanufacturing. He holds Visiting Professor/Academic postions in the Department of Materials Science at Montanuniversitӓt Leoben (Austria) and in the School of Materials at the University of Manchester (UK) and is an Editor for the Elsevier journal Surface and Coatings Technology. As a father of six children, he takes great joy in producing all kinds of food with them and his wife from their family olive groves.

Research in the Advanced Coatings Engineering Laboratory focuses on thin films and advanced materials with the goal to contribute towards the basic understanding required to synthesise tailor made functional materials. Activities span over a wide range with an emphasis on the processing-structure-properties relation in advanced materials for automotive, biomedical, energy and nanomanufacturing applications. Examples include the deposition of nanostructured coatings by plasma-assisted physical vapour deposition (PVD) techniques; the fabrication of reactive materials by PVD, ball-milling, ultrasonic powder consolidation and high-pressure torsion; the synthesis of functionalized carbon-based materials with optimized porosity and pore size for improved hydrogen sorption and ion electro-sorption, gas separation and water purification; and the design and manufacture of new tribological testing equipment and implants.
