Chemical Surface Technology

New technologies enhance surface functionalities


Advanced Battery Technology Center (ABTC)

Research in the areas of electromobility as well as stationary energy systems is a central theme at IWS in Dresden. Important contributions can be provided to battery fabrication processes based on the numerous IWS technology developments.


Chemical coating technology

The group develops chemical vapor and liquid phase processes for a uniform deposition of new materials on large surface areas. The work focuses on transparent functional thin films and porous carbon coatings for electric storage.

Gas and particle filtration

Novel filter materials and technologies for healthful indoor living and occupational safety.


Optical inspection technology

The scientists focus their research on the development of optical-spectroscopical measuring technologies to characterize and to monitor gas phase processes by ppb trace gas, multi gas and aerosol analytics. Process studies as well as the development of analyzers and their process implementation are here of main interest. Additionally we offer characterization methods for porous substances as well as methods for layer and surface characterizations.
