We're working to develop new processing strategies to fabricate hybrid functional materials with internal structures that resemble the rich architectures found in the natural world.
Natural materials like nacre derive their remarkable properties from an ordered internal architecture. How can we replicate these assemblies in artificial materials?
We use additive manufacturing to locally tune chemical compositions and create intricate microstructures not otherwise accessible by conventional processing routes.
The Falling Walls Lab is an international forum for outstanding talents and innovative thinkers. Watch here Etienne Jeoffroy presenting how his research will break the wall of roads decline.
A paper with the title "3D Printing of Emulsions and Foams into Hierarchical Porous Ceramics" has been published in Advanced Materials
Etienne Jeoffroy wins the event and will present his research in the worldwide final competition, taking place in November in Berlin.
