Fabricating colloidal materials with microfluidics (Microflusa)

Start date: 01 Sep 2015, End date: 31 Aug 2019,

In the field of colloidal science, much progress has been done on the synthesis of complex building blocks mimicking molecular structures with the hope of elaborating innovative materials. However, in the present state of the art, the rates at which these building blocks are obtained are exceedingly small. As a consequence, even though theoretically, revolutionary materials can be imagined, throug ...

Hybrid Colloidal Systems with Designed Response (COLLDENSE)

Start date: 01 Jan 2015, End date: 31 Dec 2018,

The etymology of the word colloid stems from the Greek word for glue. The systematic study of colloids (as we perceive them nowadays) is considered to have begun in the middle of the 19th century. However, the word colloid itself had been mentioned before in very different senses. The development of the physics and chemistry of colloids really took off in the 20th century. Colloids found different ...

The thermal properties of nanostructured materials are of fundamental importance to modern technology, but at present reproducible metrological definitions, tools and methods do not exist. This is because the mechanisms of heat transport at the nanoscale are entirely different to those at the macro scale.The project will place nanothermal metrology on a solid basis by an integrated physics-based e ...

Evolution of evolvable systems (EVOEVO)

Start date: 01 Jul 2012, End date: 30 Jun 2017,

"This proposal investigates the origin of three evolvable systems in biological evolution. The first pillar deals with early evolution/origin of life. It is the heaviest part of the proposal, with a strong experimental participation of a co-PI. We shall invetiage how genes, metabolism and membranes could have evolved to yield the first living cells. Intermediate stages will be proposed, modelled a ...

Non-equilibrium dynamics of soft and active matter (SoftActive)

Start date: 01 Dec 2012, End date: 30 Nov 2016,

"**The joint exchange programme “Non-equilibrium dynamics of soft and active matter” (SoftActive) aims at bringing closer communities of physicists working at the forefront of statistical/nonlinear physics of out-of-equilibrium systems. Although many aspects of this very wide topic will be covered, the project is centered on the dynamics and fluctuations in soft and active matter, a subject of cru ...

Around 20% of all modern drugs are fluorinated organic molecules. During the recent years, however, pharmaceutical companies struggle to deliver novel drugs to the market, because of the lack of innovative practical reagents and reactions towards “drug-like” compounds. In this project, we will address this issue by discovering novel small fluorinating reagents - fluorinated diazoalkanes, - elab ...

"In soft nanostructured materials containing polymers (such as acrylic adhesives), interfaces pose specific challenges since they are usually diffuse and can transfer stress through chain entanglements. The equilibrium structure of soft polymer interfaces is well-known, but their mechanical strength remains poorly understood. Yet many new nanostructured materials contain internal interfaces and im ...

Evolutionary microfluidics (eFlux)

Start date: 01 Feb 2009, End date: 31 May 2012,

Ever since the insightful suggestion of John von Neumann, self-reproducing automata are considered to be a main long-term goal of IT. Biologists are dealing with such systems that arose in the course of evolution by natural selection. The future realization of technological artefacts that will mimic, or be inspired by biological automata, will face many problems that biological evolution had to so ...
