Research in the micro and nanoscales

The performance of many products is not only determined by their material properties alone but also by the functionality of their surfaces. Functions like water and bacteria repellency, friction and wear resistance or the modulation of optical properties can be controlled by producing defined topographies in the micro and nanometer scales. The fabrication of these topographies and the understanding of their properties are topics with increasing prominence in research. At LMO, we focus on the clarification of the relationship between surface topography and function as well as on the development of fabrication methods to produce micro/nano structured surfaces on different materials.
