Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship for Dr. Hanumantha Rao Vutukuri
Dr. Hanumantha Rao Vutukuri, postdoc in the Soft Materials group, has obtained a Marie Curie Fellowship for his work on active colloidal systems. Roa will be focussing on how to use active particles to build new materials (in a collaboration with Caltech), and try to undertsand collective phenomena is such sytems.

Scalable, Ultra-resistant Structural Colors Based on Network Metamaterials
A team that includes scientists from the Laboratory for Nanometallurgy is the first to use materials with a network-like structure to create a full spectrum of intense colours. The principle has long existed in nature: for example, in the colourful plumage of a particular species of bird in South America.
