Björn Braunschweig investigates foams from A to Z. He investigates all levels of the hierarchy, from the minute to the gigantic, examining the molecular structure at the interface, the foam bubbles themselves along with their walls and lamellae, and finally the foam which is visible to the eye. Björn Braunschweig studies the molecular structure of interfaces. With the knowledge about all scales in the foam formation process, he hopes to control and improve the properties of a foam in a targeted way.
