Dr. Stephan Lederer

Coordinator DECHEMA Corrosion Center / Electrolytic Corrosion

"Effective corrosion protection not only means maintaining the appearance of a material, but also preventing damage. An effective corrosion protection coating increases the service life of plants, components and vehicles."


since 2016

PostDoc at DECHEMA Research Institute, Frankfurt am Main, Germany


PhD at GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research, Darmstadt, Germany on the investigation of radiation damage in glasses and ceramics


Study of materials science at the TU Darmstadt, Germany

Main Areas of Research

  • Electrolytic corrosion and tribocorrosion on metallic materials
