Surface forces and the behaviour of colloidal systems

We measure the basic forces that operate between molecules that are manifest at interfaces. These forces control the stability of colloidal systems from blood to toothpaste. We use very sensitive techniques that are able to measure tiny forces with sub nanometer distance resolution. Understanding these forces enables us to predict how a huge variety of colloidal systems will behave.

Nanobubbles

Nanobubbles are simply nanosized bubbles. What makes them interesting? Theory tells us they should dissolve in less than a second but they are stable for days. Additionally, they have lots of interesting properties being implicated in medical treatments and cleaning technologies.

Novel methods for remediation of Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination

Perform fundamental research to contribute to a novel means of removal of PFAS from the environment.

Specific ion effects

We are conducting fundamental research into how different ions exert influence in a myriad of systems
