Leibniz Institute of Surface Engineering (IOM)


The IOM is engaged in application-oriented basic research in the field of the interaction of radiation with matter. In addition to the elucidation of physical and chemical interaction processes, the core competencies are essentially the modification and development of ultra-precise and functional surfaces and thin films using ion, electron, laser, and plasma technologies as well as their characterization. The sustainable transfer of processes and products in economically relevant and future-oriented fields of technology is the goal of the research and development work.
