Chemical materials science & Nanostructured materials

Besides physical deposition techniques, a part of the IMS group uses chemical synthesis routes to fabricate novel nanostructured oxide materials. Examples of these are micropatterned oxide films for electronics and sensors, nanotubes for application in nanofluidic devices, nanoporous ceramic membranes, and hybrid organosilane thin films. Also solid-state electrochemical applications like SOFCs are being investigated.

At this moment, several projects are carried out in this research area:
