The research in the Professorship of Colloids, Surfaces and Interfaces (CSI) at the Otto Schott Institute for Materials Research is based on the following main topics

Laser Materials Processing

  • Surface modification using Laser-induced Periodic Surface Structures (LIPSS)
  • Surface coating by Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD)
  • Production of functional ceramic nanoparticles using CO2 laser vaporization (LAVA)

Bioinspired Material

  • Surfaces
  • Biomineralization
  • Structural hybrids

for environmental engineering, energy technology and biomaterials.

Material characterization is performed by TEM, SEM, XRD, EDX, Raman and IR spectroscopy.

LAVA - Interaction between raw material and laser radiation
A wide variety of laser types with their respective characteristic radiation properties form a versatile and flexible tool for the precise processing of various materials.
