Video Functional Particle Systems - EAM Research Area A1

The aim of the Interdisciplinary Center for Functional Particle Systems (FPS) is to develop innovative methods and processes to generate, formulate and apply particles (building blocks) with tailored sizes, shapes and structures as well as customized surface properties. The efficient development of advanced multifunctional products can only be realized by interdisciplinary collaboration. Based on the broad field of particle technology, FPS brings together chemical engineering, materials science, chemistry, physics and medicine expertise to focus on eight specialized interdisciplinary topics: (1) Particle formation, (2) Interactions, (3) Structure formation, (4) Characterization, (5) Processing, (6) Applications, (7) Life sciences and toxicology and (8) Modeling.
