Our research focuses on the broad areas of adhesion, friction as well as interfacial forces and their utilization for making better energy-saving, energy efficient, cheaper, long lasting smart materials for application in structural and functional materials. We are also interested in dynamic interaction forces, single molecular interactions and soft matter physics in confined spaces. Our aim is to gain insight into the fundamental interactions in complex interfacial processes, and to translate fundamental science into knowledge-based design of better and novel structural and functional materials for technological applications.

 +==== Inaugural Lecture ====
 +{{:interface:inaugural_lecture.png?240 |}} With his inaugural lecture Univ.Prof. Dr. Markus Valtiner officially started teaching at Vienna University of Technology.
 +In front of interested colleagues, industry and university representatives, friends and family he gave an pleasing overview of his groups research activities.

 +==== AIP group vs. Particles 1:0 ====
 +{{:interface:getting_ready_for_clean_room.jpg?180 |}} Many of our experiments we do require special awareness of contaminations. After an intensive clean room training we started to tidy our lab and make it ready to be run as a clean room. The motto is: Don't give dust a chance.
