Author Biography

About the Author

Prof. Wulff Possart holds the chair for Adhesion and Interphases in Polymers at the University of the Saarland in Saarbrücken, Germany. He gained his doctorate in interfacial science and adhesion from the Academy of Sciences of the GDR in 1984, and received his lecturing qualification in solid state physics from Potsdam University, Germany, in 1993. He is the author of more than 88 scientific papers, book chapters and books, and serves on the editorial boards of several scientific journals. Professor Possart's work focuses on mechanisms of fundamental adhesion, structure formation and properties of thin organic and polymer films, interphase chemistry in reactive systems, polymer dynamics at the phase boundary, and on the ageing and durability of thin films and interphases.
