Dynamics of Complex Fluids and Interfaces


Our HI ERN research department is developing simulation and modeling techniques for fluid dynamics. Typical scientific and engineering contexts are electrocatalytic thin films, and printing and coating processes. The results of this work are supposed to improve fundamental understanding as well as assist production of solar cells and electrocatalytic devices. The theoretical work of our section perfectly connects the HI ERN research areas “printable photovoltaics” and “hydrogen as secondary energy source”.

Research Topics

  • Chemical reactions inside thin films
  • Interfacial properties of fluids
  • Development and application of simulation methods: Lattice-Boltzmann, molecular dynamics, phase field simulation

See the list of working groups for further details.
