Functionalised Surfaces
We modify surfaces in such a way that interact with their environment and application-specific functions such as such as biocompatibility, air purification or corrosion resistance are achieved.

Antiviral anodised surfaces
through the incorporation of

The aim of the project is to utilise the inherent pore structure of anodised aluminium by introducing antiviral metal nanoparticles as well as photocatalysts into the open pore structure. The technical challenge in developing such a functional surface is to design the anodised layer system in such a way that the incorporation of the particles succeeds without affecting the essential properties of the anodised layer.

Degradation of nitrogen oxides on photocatalytic profiles made of aluminium

In the project, photocatalytically active, anodised aluminium surfaces were developed that can contribute to a reduction in air pollution, especially nitrogen oxide pollution in urban regions. To achieve the project goal, differently modified, photocatalytically active nanoparticles with the smallest possible particle diameters (5-25nm) were embedded in anodised pores.
