BALZER LAB

What is friction? What is adhesion? How are single molecule properties related to the bahvior of macroscopic materials? Atomic force microscopy is used to answer these questions! The Balzer Lab is a part of the Chair for Single Molecule Spectroscopy (Prof. Dr. Thorsten Hugel) at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the University of Freiburg. Thorsten Hugel started to work with AFMs and single molecules in 2000 when he joined Hermann Gaub's lab (LMU, Munich) for his PhD thesis. In 2007, Bizan N. Balzer joined Thorsten Hugel's lab (TU München) getting infected with the passion for single molecule adhesion and friction. After finishing his PhD thesis there in 2013, he rejoined Thorsten Hugel at the University of Freiburg in 2016, starting his own group focussing on AFM based experiments.
