The Abel groups at the Leibniz Institute of Surface Engineering (IOM) and at the University of Leipzig are engaged in research in the field of molecular physical chemistry, smart material science, analytical science, ultrafast spectroscopy, and nanoscale imaging related to surfaces and surface modification/engineering.
Our activities have the purpose of obtaining fundamental knowledge of matter and material to develop new molecular and analytical probes, new interface materials, and finally to use the knowledge to develop advanced analytical techniques, smart materials and material coatings, and ultimately devices and high-tech material surfaces (soft matter, adaptive, smart, switchable, responsive, etc.) for industry and industrial applications.
