Research Impact & Significance – Polyelectrolyte multilayers are thin films made by depositing oppositely charged polyelectrolytes on surfaces. They can be customized to protect any object, store and deliver drugs or form filtration membranes. In my research, I try to understand the behavior of the building blocks of these films in order to expand the basic knowledge and optimize them for better applications. The image is the surface of the multilayer magnified 43000 times.
