Short description

The objective of the research at the Institute of Functional Interfaces is the study of molecular interactions on surfaces of solid matter which are in contact with natural and technical systems. Our approach in this field of research is based on investigating basic principles behind processes on a nano scale and consistently applying the findings to macro-level technical systems. Based on this approach our Motto is "Molecular interactions at interfaces - From nano to macro"

    Lithium and Cobalt might not suffice

    Lithium and cobalt are fundamental components of present lithium-ion batteries. Analysis by researchers at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) shows that the availability of both elements could become seriously critical. Cobalt-free battery techn ... more

    Scientists observe nanowires as they grow

    At DESY's X-ray source PETRA III, scientists have followed the growth of tiny wires of gallium arsenide live. Their observations reveal exact details of the growth process responsible for the evolving shape and crystal structure of the crystalline nanowires. The findings also provide new ap ... more

    Quantum computing with molecules for a quicker search of unsorted databases

    Scrapbooks or social networks are collections of mostly unsorted data. The search for single elements in very large data volumes, i.e. for the needle in the data haystack, is extremely complex for classical computers. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have now quantum me ... more
