Wolfgang Peukert specialises in particle technology and interface physics. He has been very successful in his work on the interface between fundamental research and applications, which include investigations of the physical and chemical origins of interactions between particles. His research into the behaviour of particles in the submicron and nanometre range has led to the clarification of scientific relationships and has formed the basis for manufacturing specific product characteristics for applications.
