Gustav E. R. Schulze's pioneering work on Laves phases

Peter Paufler


There are several reasons to recollect the merits of Gustav Ernst Robert Schulze on the occasion of Fritz Laves' anniversary. Firstly, he had been a good friend of Laves and shared his interest in intermetallic compounds. Secondly, his work on Laves phases, though containing important early results, is less well known for some reasons. Thirdly, Schulze was the founder of a very efficient research centre on intermetallics in Dresden which is still active today. Finally, he introduced Metal Physics at the TU Dresden as a broad subject of bringing together structure and properties of the metallic state from a more fundamental point of view. Later on, this had a clustering effect for the development of materials research institutes in Dresden.
