Our main competences surface physics and chemistry and core activities are located within the realm of fundamental research, but we have a long tradition of developing fundamental research results into real-world technological applications. It is part of our mission to assist internal and external partners in technology development with our know-how and experience. To this end, we collaborate with academic and governmental research labs and industrial companies worldwide.
We are organised in three groups that cover research topics such as carbon-based nanomaterials, molecular engineering at surfaces or functional nanostructured surfaces, both from an experimental point of view as well as via atomistic simulations.
