SCHARF: Skalenübergreifende Charaktierisierung robuster funktionaler Materialsysteme (scale-bridging characterization of robust functional materials systems)
Programmable mechanical metamaterials process information such as strain and stress through a series of logic steps. This produces a tangible change in their macroscopic mechanical properties. A basis for the logical functions is the design of mesoscopic structures across several hierarchical levels. In my research, I investigate mechanical mechanisms and develop mesostructure designs that are optimized for metal and polymer materials systems with varying mechanical properties (stiffness, elasticity) and manufacturing processes.
