Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences - Physics of Macromolecules


The central goal of our research is to correlate structure and dynamics of molecular systems at interfaces with mechanical, electronic, optical and (bio-)chemical properties from molecular to macroscopic length and time scales.
