Materials

The creation of new types of solids and liquids by rational and targeted design, or by incorporating basic principles of biomineralization, occupies several of the CCB groups. Nanowires, thin films, photonic circuitry, regulatory networks, liquid-repellent surfaces, thermally reversible materials, and soft robots all are under investigation in CCB.
