University of Luxembourg RU Physics and Materials (Advanced Materials)

Core business

Research at LPM is focused on physical properties and structures of polymers with interphases. Interphases occur at the interfaces between polymers and other materials or at phase boundaries inside of polymers. These interphases affect the macroscopic properties of the materials which are in the focus of the experimental investigations at the LPM.
