Chemie und Struktur neuer Materialien
We develop nanostructures made of anodic oxides, which are coated with functional organic molecules. Our goal is to create complex, multifunctional nanostructures. For this we use anodic oxidation, self-accumulating monolayers and surface analysis (SEM, ToF-SIMS, XPS..). Details about our ongoing and planned projects can be found under Research .
