Interface Materials

The research field Interface Materials focuses on physical and physico-chemical processes at interfaces. Its research includes the design and synthesis of materials and structures with high densities of surfaces and interfaces, their characterization by advanced in-situ microscopy techniques, and the modeling and prediction of properties. Recent developments include a progressive shift from scientific concepts to practical applications (e.g. in adhesives and energy storage).
