Towards the next generation of high performance & multifunctional materials

The mission of Electrochemical and Surface Engineering (SURF) is to build a solid knowledge and to be an international leader on how to manipulate, analyze and model metal and metal oxide surfaces from the macro to the nm scale, including nano- particles and wires, in interaction with their environment. This knowledge can then be deployed to make tailored nanoscale structures for all kind of desired applications and contribute to the development of the next generation of high performance and multifunctional metals and hybrid materials, with a strong emphasis on durability and sustainability, responding to the needs and challenges that drive our society today and tomor- row. This mission is supported by large-scale programs, like the Methusalem program NANOMET, to develop this new and alternative approach to materials management.

Electrochemical and Surface Engineering

Electrochemical engineering covers the area of controlled elec- trochemical processes (such as electrolysis, batteries and fuel cells) as well as the study of unintended processes, such as corrosion. Surface engineering is aimed at the development and

optimization of processes to perform dedicated surface treat- ments. Important is the ability to make functional materials, for example self-healing coatings.

SURF’s approach to both the fundamental and the application driven aspects is combining experimental and modeling tech- niques. Experimental techniques are oriented towards surface characterization, in-situ and ex-situ, and electrochemical analy- sis. Modeling means development of simulation and prediction models and numerical tools to handle the mathematics.

The SURF group - counting over 50 people - is recognized as IOF Centre of Excellence within the VUB and internationally renowned. Industrial valorization is one of its key priorities. It has a prominent position in the EU research field and industrial valorization are it's key priorities. SURF has a leading position in new resarch disciplines of state-of-the-art electrochemistry and (nano)surfaces, such as:

- Dimension ‘downscaling’ to nanometer resolution: analyzing and manipulating the surface of the material on the very localized, nano-technological scale.

- Multifunctional metals: the creation and analysis of metal surfaces with a unique combination of functional proper- ties on a very small dimension.

- Process modeling: quantitative modeling of electrochemi- cal processes to get a better and quantified understanding
