Adhesion mediated by polymers, multivalent adhesion

Contact: Georg Papastavrou

Adhesion in polymeric systems occurs on various levels: Our research concentrates primarily on adhesion processes on the level of single polymer chains. We utilize single molecule force spectroscopy that allows determining the interaction of single... more...

Biomaterials and bioadhesion

Contact: Georg Papastavrou

Various techniques pursued in our research group can be applied directly towards biomaterials and bioadhesion. Spider silk proteins combine interesting properties for pharmaceutical applications. We determine the colloidal properties of spider silk... more...

Development of new techniques (SFB 840)

Contact: Georg Papastavrou

State of the art instrumentation is essential and the development of new instrumentation or methods is often pivotal for various projects. We develop new techniques for the quantitative determination and high resolution imaging of charge distributi... more...


Contact: Georg Papastavrou

The incorporation of permanent charges in polymer films (e.g. by corona charging), is a long-known effect that has many applications, such as in the electret microphone. Despite the widespread use of these materials there remain many open questions... more...

Electrochemistry and AFM

Contact: Georg Papastavrou

Electrochemical techniques allow for the tuning of interfacial properties in a highly defined manner without changing the bulk solution. Hence, interaction forces and ion... more...

Thin polymer films and polymer adsorption

Contact: Georg Papastavrou

Polymer adsorption and film formation are important processes at solid interfaces, which have many practical applications. In our research we study polymer adsorption primarily by means of well-defined model systems. One current research field is ... more...
