Optical and thermal sensitive polymer materials

Prof. Brigitte Voit

  • Synthesis of copolymers with photo- and thermally labile functionalities and with responsive properties, realized e.g. by incorporation of photo- and thermolabile protection groups in suitable monomers and polymers
  • Use of these functional copolymers for surface and interface design as thin patternable layers e.g. for microelectronics, microsystems, diagnostics and sensor application
