IPC is a process whereby fibers are formed through interactions at the interface of oppositely charged polymers. IPC polyelectrolyte fibers have been investigated for various applications such as drug delivery, bio-sensing, flexible electronics and tissue engineering. In this work, we aim at figuring out new combinations of polyelectrolyte to fabricate stable and functional IPC fibers. If you want to learn more about how to build and optimize a research system with varying parameters, this is work for you. The potential application will be in electronics or in biology.

The work includes:
• Fabrication of micro-fibers in a printed nozzle
• Varying important parameters to optimize fibers
• Fiber characterization and application

What we expect from you:
• High motivation to work independently
• Interest in chemistry and chemical lab work

We offer:
• Intensive care
• Interdisciplinary working environment
• Room for your own ideas
• Innovative working atmosphere in a Clusters of Excellence research group


The scope of the thesis can be adjusted to a bachelor or master thesis. If you are interested in this work and would like to know more about it, just drop me an e-mail or call me. Qing.Cui@avt.rwth-aachen.de
