Institute of Polymer Nanotechnology

We deal with the functionalisation of plastics by means of micro and nano-structuring of surfaces, chemical modification or additives.

We are a multi-disciplinary institute at the interface between polymer engineering and nanotechnology. An interdisciplinary team is devoted to developing new materials, processes and applications. Functionalisation or functional integration in polymer systems is always the focus of the work.

The Institute of Polymer Nanotechnology is a shared facility with the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI which gives access to clean-room technology and large research facilities. We collaborate closely with the FHNW Institute of Polymer Engineering.
