Pillar 3: Interface Science and Integration

The activities in this field aim at studying and exploiting processes at solid-solid, solid-solution, and solid-gas interfaces, many of which are of relevance in catalysis as well as in material degradation, and to assemble individually designed and synthesized material components into devices that are useful e.g. in (photo)catalytic hydrogen production and CO2 reduction. In all steps, experimental approaches are complemented by modelling studies to gain a molecular understanding and develop models with predictive power for accelerated material development.
