My group is active in the fields of (i) polymeric or liquid electrolytes, (ii) colloidal carriers and nanostructured materials, and (iii) polyelectrolyte self-assembly and thin films. We predominantly investigate transport processes of ions (e.g. Li+ in topic (i)) or of active molecules (topic (ii)) using NMR methods. The main techniques in our lab are multinuclear Pulsed Field Gradient NMR and Electrophoretic NMR. In the context of EURELAX we seek for collaborations to complement our methods with relaxometry tools available elsewhere, mainly for studying electrolyte materials ranging from ionic liquids to polymer electrolytes and gel electrolytes, in order to obtain a detailed molecular picture of ion mobility.
