"THE THING´S HOLLOW – IT GOES ON FOREVER – AND – OH MY GOD –
IT´S FULL OF STARS!"

(Arthur C. Clarke, 2001 – A Space Odyssey)



„The topics addressed are all written in great detail, have been closely researched and, as it were, networked at the multi-tasking level. Thorsten Klooster, who did research at Brandenburg Technical University in Cottbus from 2011 to 2007 among others in new materials, with a focus on functional surfaces, has written a specialist work that offers more than an overview of existing (surface) technologies, as it provides a very scientific account of them."
