More than superficial: Functionalised layers that interact with their environment

For 50 years, the fem has been investigating and optimising the anodisation of light metals to increase sustainability. Anodisation creates columnar nanocontainers in the substrate material. These can be filled appropriately and customised. Particle incorporation into these nanocontainers leads to functional layers: Thus, we create new surfaces that neutralise pathogens or filter out pollutants from the air.
