Tiny details with an enormous effect: On its stand the research focus "Nanosciences and surface research" KiNSIS at CAU is showing how wide application opportunities are created for industry from accurate cutting-edge research. Selected examples from the laboratories in Kiel will make research on a nano scale tangible and comprehensible for visitors to the trade fair. Through the interdisciplinary collaboration between Physics, Chemistry, Engineering Sciences and Life Science molecular machinery and surfaces arise in Kiel, which have completely new characteristics owing to their nano structures. The broad-ranging research field includes highly sensitive magnetic sensors and switchable contrast agents for medical diagnostics, molecules, which change their characteristics through external stimuli such as light or adhesive materials inspired by nature. Metals and plastics can be combined on a permanent basis as a result of processes developed in Kiel. High-resolution temperature sensors from plasma physics optimise coating processes in industry. Visitors will be able to experience some of these examples interactively on site. Scientists will explain what is behind all this on the stand and in lectures.
