At the moment I am working on the development of a polymer coating with antifouling-properties for maritime structures, e. g. off-shore wind turbines or ships hulls. Our antifouling-strategy is based on environmentally friendly non-toxic ceramic polymer composites. We investigate the effect of variations of physical parameters on the fouling behavior of marine organisms.
