Welcome to the Mesostructured Materials and Devices Lab

In the Mesostructured Materials and Devices (MeMaD) research group, we are interested in the interplay of functional materials and structures with features sizes from the nano- to the microscale, with focus on spatially controlled and nanoconfined synthesis. We study the fundamental aspects of phase separation and self-assembly of complex fluids and amphiphiles such as block copolymers into equilibrium and non-equilibrium morphologies. We utilize such bottom-up assembly methods to create mesostructured architectures of a multitude of functional soft and hard materials, as well as mesohybrids with distinct multiphasic interdigitation.
