Crystal-inspired architected materials: Nature 565 (2019) & 3-year postdoc position at Imperial College London

We recently presented an original research that uses 3d printing to realise the mimicry of the microstructure observed in crystalline metals to employ crystals’ hardening mechanisms to develop robust and damage-tolerant architected materials (Nature 2019; 565:305 - https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0850-3). The use of crystalline alloys as the base materials to fabricate crystal-like architected materials opens a new frontier of research as it leads to the generation of an excitingly new family of materials (termed meta-crystals) comprising highly scalable hierarchical crystal structure: intrinsic micro-crystals within architected macro-crystals. 

There is a 3-year postdoc position to explore many more exciting opportunities offered by this approach. Brilliant opportunities of collaboration with leading experts in additive manufacturing, microstructure and architected materials in UK and USA.
