Wir trauern um

Herrn Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Gerhard Christen,

der am 26. September 2022 im Alter von 84 Jahren plötzlich verstorben ist.

Er leitete das Fachgebiet Mechanismentechnik (zurzeit Fachgebiet Nachgiebige Systeme) von 1992 bis 2003. Wir gedenken unseres langjährigen Fachkollegen, der die Entwicklung des Fachgebietes Mechanismentechnik an der Technischen Universität Ilmenau stark geprägt hat. Sein fachliches Engagement, sowohl national wie international und seine persönliche Integrität waren beispielhaft.
Wir werden uns stets mit Dankbarkeit und Verehrung an ihn erinnern.

Research

TU Ilmenau / NSys

We conduct research in the areas of compliant systems and mechanism technology. The focus of our investigations is currently on compliant systems in connection with interdisciplinary research topics for applications in precision engineering, robotics and medical technology. The analysis, optimization and synthesis of compliant systems, which are divided into compliant mechanisms, compliant actuators and compliant sensors, is carried out by careful analytical and computational methods, for which we are particularly competent.
