Fields of Work

The main area of activity is directed to the physical chemistry of nanomaterials, polymer materials with some emphasis on polymer interfaces and scattering techniques. At IPF the following main topics are investigated:

  • nanostructured materials
  • polymer interfaces and thin films
  • structure-properties relationships
  • surface and interface characterization

In particular the following topics are currently under investigation:

  • preparation and characterization of nanostructured materials
  • formation of polymer nanostructured thin films by self assembly
  • switching of surface properties by grafting of polymer brushes
  • nanotemplates by copolymer microphase segregation
  • ordered magnetic nano-arrays for data storage
  • effect of surface structure on bioactivity and protein adsorption
  • correlation between interface width and adhesion
  • chain conformations and manipulation of single molecules at surfaces
  • single molecule based electronics
  • polyelectrolyte adsorption and surface structure
  • nanohybrid materials with copolymers
  • wetting and dewetting of thin polymer film
  • control of movement of motor proteins on surfaces
  • formation of nanotubes by rolling technique
  • friction and adhesion of functional surfaces
  • interaction forces between surfaces
  • conducting thin organic films for solar cell applications
  • nanocomposites with (multi-)functional / magnetic nanoparticles
  • structure - properties relationships of polymer materials
  • effect of chain architecture on blend and adsorption behavior
  • development of surface analysis and nano fabrication techniques
