SFB 1083 "Internal Interfaces" extended by 4 years

Additional 10.5 Million Euros for Marburg's Physicists and Chemists

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG) has granted Marburgs Collaborative Research Center (Sonderforschungsbereich) SFB 1083 „Structure and Dynamics of Internal Interfaces“ 10.5 Million Euros funding over the course of another four years until 2021. With this, the SFB - under guidance of its spokesman physicist Prof. Dr. Ulrich Höfer - will enter a new phase. The initial four years focussed on understanding the physical-chemical phenomena at interfaces, while the new focal point will be on controlling these phenomena and tailoring them for application.

Cooperation with partners in Jülich, Münster and Gießen

The new funding period will bring together 60 to 80 scientists in 18 research projects. One of these is located at the university in Münster (A13), one at the Peter-Grünberg-Institut in Jülich (A12), and two are located at the university in Gießen. Six projects are led by young research staff that has not yet attained a professorship.

New challenges: stacking of material layers and mixing of characteristics

In the new funding period SFB 1083 will also include research into novel two-dimensional materials. These single-atom-thick layers basically consist of "surface" only. In transfering newly gained insights into internal interfaces, SFB 1083's researchers will build heterosystems with new effects by stacking layers of mixing characteristics of 2D-materials. By controlling these processes the scientists expect to offer the material sciences a modular assemblage box.  A new collaboration with a research center at Columbia University New York is part of this strategy.
