Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Nature’s biological composites, such as mother-of-pearl, or iridescent butterfly wings, possess incredible structural complexity, which is integral to their functionality. However, the incorporation of such structural and functional complexities into synthetic mimics of natural composites remains a major challenge in materials research. In this seminar series, we will look at how Nature’s biological materials are structured for improved 1) strength and toughness; 2) to incorporate self-healing capabilities and 3) to display their fascinating array structural colours. We will also explore how scientists are utilizing lessons from nature and a materials chemistry perspective to tackle the challenges of creating novel, multifunctional composites.
