IDeAS team

Smart materials based on self-assembled or nanostructured systems are the main focus of the “Dynamic interfaces and stimuli-responsive assemblies” team.

We use polymers, nanoparticles or surfactants to design stimuli-responsive systems with applications in material science, nanomedecine and environmental science.

We characterise 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, as well as scattering techniques, rheology, thermal analysis, fluorescence, NMR, etc.

To optimise our materials, we employ design of experiments, multivariate analysis or data modelling.

Research topics

Nanostructured & hybrid soft matter
Soft matter for drug delivery, tissue engineering & imaging
Colloids for environment: (photo)catalysis & CO₂-uptake
Responsive & out-of-equilibrium systems
