SFB 986: Subproject C04 - Additive manufacturing by selfassembly of colloidal suspensions for tailor-made photonic properties
July 1, 2012
June 30, 2024
TP C4 aims at the fabrication of multi-scale and multiphase photonic coatings by combining methods of additive fabrication with the self-assembly of colloidal suspensions and thus combining principles of colloidal self-organization with the scalability and form flexibility of direct writing. We expect that this will enable us to control the particle arrangement in the µm to nm scale on planar and curved cm-sized substrates and to produce ceramic photonic structures for adaptable photonic properties, structural colors and high temperature applications.
