The group focuses on properties and dynamic processes on solid interfaces that are studied with surface sensitive spectroscopic methods. A focus lies on the understanding on the basic phenomenon of interface solvation and how it is influenced by the nanostructure of the interface. Studied systems are electrochemical interfaces, such as the electric double layer as well as nanopatterned organic interfaces formed by self-assembly. A central methodical approach is the application of nanoscale infrared spectroscopy (AFM-IR). Furthermore, we employ optical spectroscopies (IR, Raman, spectroscopic ellipsometry) coupled with electrochemistry.
The group is currently being build up. We are looking for motivated and talented students to join in MSc and PhD projects. Applications can be send via: Job-Offers [more]
