Our research interests include novel materials for electrochemical applications, manipulation of material properties by external electric fields, nanoscale confinement and interfacial effects in soft materials as well as broadband dielectric spectroscopy and its applications. We therefore employ several experimental techniques, especially, broadband dielectric spectroscopy, as well as numerical approaches to investigate structure-property relationships in ion-conducting polymers, ionic liquids, copolymers, liquid crystals, molecular liquids, and eutectic mixtures.
