Research

IRG1 Focus and Goals

The goal of IRG1 is to develop a fundamental understanding of self-assembly of bulk materials from multi-component colloidal suspensions by using directed and programmed interactions.

IRG2 Focus and Goals

The goal of IRG2 is to learn, through experiment, theory, and simulation, the syntactical rules for the design of "syntactomers” whose phase behaviors facilitate programming of their self-assembly into supramolecular nano- to mesoscalestructures.
