Functional Polymers at Interfaces
We study the (nano)structure and dynamics in interfacial systems with respect to the interfacial chemistry and -topography. By using a broad spectrum of methods involving techniques like microscopy, scattering and spectroscopy we are able to investigate the behaviour of responsive homopolymers, microgels, block copolymers and terpolymers on different interfaces, such as, planar interfaces (e.g. water/air) and curved interfaces (e.g. nanoparticles).
