Prof. Dr. Tobias Kraus


Lecture: Functional Coatings (FC) WS 21/22

from 21 October 2021


3 (+1) ECTS Points

For Master students of Materials Science, Materials Engineering, (Materials-) Chemistry and other interested students we offer the lecture "Functional Coatings" in German with English documentation (2 SWS).

Especially for students of (materials) chemistry, additional exercises to the lecture are offered this semester (+1 ECTS point). They serve to illustrate the lecture contents and can be attended on a voluntary basis by all other interested students (without ECTS credit). This is recommended, as these exercises serve as preparation for exams.

Lecture Topics:

  • Properties of functional coatings

  • Material base and structure

  • Characterization of coating properties

  • Coating methods

  • Barrier coatings

  • Tribological coatings

  • Optical coatings

  • Coatings for electronics

Accompanying practical course to the lecture PC06

Hands-on experiments on a interesting colloidal system

Accompanying the lecture Physical Chemistry 06 (PC06) there will be a practical course in WS21/22.

  • Size:   Small groups (2 students)
  • Duration:   Approx. 2 afternoons per group
  • Location:   University labs C 4 2 (5th floor)
  • Date:   Mid-end January 2021, to be scheduled in the lecture

Supervision lab classes:
Dr. Mariano Laguna   mariano.laguna(at)



Practical Course: Colloids and Interfaces

The purpose of this laboratory class is to introduce you some synthetic techniques used to prepare suspensions. A strong focus is on small nanoparticles and clusters, but you will work with larger particles as they are used in ceramics production, too. An important principle of this class is that you will synthesize particles, analyze them in subsequent experiments, and finally use them to prepare materials.


Dates: 28.02.2022 - 11.03.2022

Deadline for registration: 11.02.2022
