Complex Materials

Anisotropic microcapsules for the fabrication of hierarchically-reinforced composites

Hierarchically composites are materials where microstructural parameters are controlled and fine-tuned on several length scales. Although hierarchically-structured materials are widespread in nature, translating these concepts to synthetic composites still remains challenging. Read more
