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)
- Structural hybrids
for environmental engineering, energy technology and biomaterials.
Material characterization is performed by TEM, SEM, XRD, EDX, Raman and IR spectroscopy.
