Mechanical Integrity of Bio_Inspired Composites

Mechanical Integrity of Bio_Inspired Composites

Internship Description

The candidate will have to explore highly innovative ideas in the field of bio-inspired interfaces and materials. The focus will on the design of new patterned interfaces, processed by laser treatment, with improved toughness and delamination resistance. The candidate will have to go through an extensive literature review, both on fracture engineering but also on available biological systems. Then, he will participate in defining the strategy for the patterning and be in charge of the exploration/test and validation of the concept. The student is expected to participate in writing journal publications and presenting research at conferences. ​​​​
