IDeAS team / J.-D. Marty & A.-F. Mingotaud
Smart materials based on self-assembled or nanostructured systems are the main focus of the Dynamic Interfaces and Stimulable Assemblies team.
We use polymers, nanoparticles or surfactants to design stimuli-responsive systems with applications in material science, nanomedecine and environmental science.
We characterize these assemblies at different length scales either under equilibrium or non-equilibrium conditions using a large panel of techniques such as optical, electronic and atomic force microscopies, or scattering techniques, rheology, thermal analysis, fluorescence, NMR etc...
The optimization of our materials is often performed through design of experiments, multivariate analysis or data modelling.
The team works on 3 main themes:
Polymeric nanomaterials / J. Fitremann
Hybrid nanoparticles / C. Coudret
Active matter / B. Lonetti
