Maik Tepper, M. Sc.
Maik Tepper's research deals with the functional surface modification of hollow fiber membranes by wet spinning. In particular, the focus is on the development of microstructured hollow fiber membranes by the "Rotation in a Spinneret" technology. Many membrane applications suffer from performance limiting boundary layer phenomena such as fouling or concentration polarization. Our microstructured surfaces create mixing effects that hydrodynamically attack and significantly reduce the boundary layer phenomena. Our microstructured hollow fiber membranes are successfully applied in drinking water and wastewater treatment, as well as food and medical technology.
