Our research focuses on the investigation of corrosion mechanisms on surfaces and at interfaces. Even though the diversity of materials and application fields is vast, the macroscopic corrosion behaviour of all systems emerges from the interplay of elementary processes occurring at the molecular level. The understanding of this interplay is our main research goal.

We apply combined analysis methods to model systems as well as engineering materials to correlate our fundamental results with the corrosion resistance of technical systems. For this purpose we work in interdisciplinary projects with internal and external partners to develop novel tools and innovative solutions.
