IFE Distinguished Visitor Lecture: Static and Dynamic Bioinspired Self-Assembled Material Systems

Professor Andreas Walther (Albert-Ludwigs-University, Germany) will be speaking about concepts for bioinspired materials formed in both static and dynamic conditions. The first part of the lecture will deal with rather static, nacre-inspired high-performance nanocomposites, in which light-adaptive properties can be encoded through co-assembly and energy transfer approaches. The second part will focus on a platform concept, … Read more “IFE Distinguished Visitor Lecture: Static and Dynamic Bioinspired Self-Assembled Material Systems”
