SUrface and interface Reactivity and Functionalisation

Heads:  Frédéric Christien and Loïc Favergeon

The area of interest of SURF group covers aging, reactivity, embrittlement and cracking of solid state materials during both manufacturing and in service operation. Mutliscale modelling from atomic to continuous level allows lifetime prediction in both low temperature aqueous and high temperature gaseous environments. Understanding surface and interface reactivity, physical metallurgy and functionalization principles, results in a wide range of both fundamental and applied research in chemical, nuclear, oil&gas fields, all in close cooperation with industrial partners, and in the emerging field of creative industries.
