Material Functionalization Cluster

The targeted modification of the properties of surfaces by using ultrashort pulse lasers is a promising approach to increase the efficiencies of diverse energy technologies. The laser-structured surfaces created by these processes enable the targeted and permanent modification of material properties, such as increasing the specific surface area or adjusting the wetting behavior with respect to liquids The targeted use and combination of such structured materials already shows a high potential for innovation and efficiency in the fields of hydrogen technology as well as heat transfer. The aim of the Material Functionalization cluster is to further develop existing technology concepts and implement new technological approaches for energy conversion processes.
