Bachmann group

Chemistry of Thin Film Materials

Research Focus

Research in the Bachmann group (chair ‘Chemistry of Thin Film Materials’) focuses on the development of preparative methods for nanostructured inorganic materials and interfaces at which various types of energy conversion phenomena can be studied. We create inorganic nanostructures with accurately tunable geometry, and we study their physical and chemical properties systematically as they vary with the geometric parameters. We are particularly interested in the transport and exchange of electrons and ions at interfaces in solar cells, batteries, and other electrodes.
