We develop and study adaptive surfaces and surfaces adapting to external trigger. Our aim is to find mechanical and chemical durable surface repelling fluids as water and blood, as well as to study these interfaces for their physical behavior. more
Stefan Weber
We are an interdisciplinary group of scanning force microscopy (SFM) enthusiasts, constantly exploring the limits of this fascinating microscopy method. The goal is to understand the underlying physics of nanoscale systems.  more
Rüdiger Berger
We investigate forces associated with sliding drops and apply advanced scanning force microscopy methods. more
Kaloian Koynov
We develop fluorescence correlation spectroscopy and related methods to address research questions in the field of polymer, colloid and interface science.  more
Michael Kappl
Studying surface interactions and wetting properties at the nano- and microscale, we aim for novel applications such as the production of supraparticles on superamphiphobic surfaces or water desalination by membrane distillation. more

As a Ph.D. student I am working on charge separation in water droplets. My goal is to study these effects on structured surfaces. My focus is fabricating Janus pillars with photolithography and plasma and/or chemical treatment. I am investigating the chemical and physical processes underlying the electrification of polymer-water contacts using various surface and interfacial analysis techniques.
