2012 - Fellow of the Materials Research Society
2008 - Max Planck Research Award Biomaterials
His main research concerns Composite material, Crystallography, Anatomy, Small-angle X-ray scattering and Scattering. In his research on the topic of Composite material, Cell wall and Elastic modulus is strongly related with Cellulose. His Crystallography study also includes fields such as
His work on Cortical bone, Collagen fibril and Bone tissue as part of his general Anatomy study is frequently connected to Mineral particles, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Small-angle X-ray scattering study combines topics in areas such as Crystallinity, Stress, Crystal and Small-angle scattering. His work focuses on many connections between Scattering and other disciplines, such as Synchrotron, that overlap with his field of interest in Beam.
Peter Fratzl spends much of his time researching Composite material, Crystallography, Scattering, Small-angle X-ray scattering and Anatomy. Peter Fratzl regularly ties together related areas like Microfibril in his Composite material studies. Peter Fratzl is studying Microstructure, which is a component of Crystallography.
His Scattering study improves the overall literature in Optics. The concepts of his Anatomy study are interwoven with issues in Biophysics and Biomedical engineering.
His primary areas of investigation include Chemical engineering, Biophysics, Composite material, Osteocyte and Amorphous calcium carbonate. His Chemical engineering research includes themes of Coating, Phase, Polymer and Calcite. His studies in Biophysics integrate themes in fields like Arthropod cuticle, Locust, Electron microscope, Mean curvature and Mineralization.
His Mineralization research focuses on Bone remodeling and how it relates to Biomedical engineering. His is doing research in Stiffness, Lamellar structure, Fracture toughness, Ultimate tensile strength and Toughness, both of which are found in Composite material. As a part of the same scientific study, Peter Fratzl usually deals with the Fiber, concentrating on Matrix and frequently concerns with Anatomy.
His primary scientific interests are in Nanotechnology, Biomineralization, Chemical engineering, Biophysics and Amorphous calcium carbonate. When carried out as part of a general Nanotechnology research project, his work on Nanoscopic scale, Hybrid material and Biomimetic materials is frequently linked to work in Molecular level, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. He usually deals with Biomineralization and limits it to topics linked to Calcium carbonate and Inorganic chemistry, Carbonate, Molecule, Coordination number and Hydrogen bond.
His work deals with themes such as Anhydrous, Paracentrotus lividus, Test and Calcite, which intersect with Chemical engineering. Peter Fratzl interconnects Cell migration, Bone canaliculus, Cell growth, Electron microscope and Matrix in the investigation of issues within Biophysics. Peter Fratzl works on Composite material which deals in particular with Mineralized tissues.
