Welcome to the Applied Theoretical Physics group at the Institute of Physics, University of Freiburg


Research in our group is devoted to the investigation of the physical properties of soft matter and functional materials, such as molecular fluids, electrolytes, biological and synthetic polymers as well as functional nanoparticles and colloids. We employ approaches from statistical physics combined with various multi-scale computer simulation techniques, such as highly parallel molecular dynamics (MD) or coarse-grained Brownian dynamics (BD) simulations.

Embedded is the joint research group (JRG) "Simulations of Energy Materials" which constitutes a cooperation between the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Freiburg. The JRG focuses on the study of functional interfaces that are important for energy storage and conversion materials. In particular, we look at solid/liquid interfaces between (semi-)conducting electrode surfaces and aqueous or organic electrolyte solvents, in close collaboration with experimentalists.
