Photonic Bandgap Microcapsule

GTPN-COPE researchers have microfluidically prepared microcapsules with of a fluidic photon upconverting core and photonic shell from a triple emulsion as a template. The achievable dimensions and compositional flexibility of the upconverting core and photonic shell suggest a range of opportunities the future design of low-threshold photonic devices.

Soft Matter Incubator (SMI) researcher Prof. Elisabetta Matsumoto is part of a team of researchers that is helping bring hyperbolic space to anyone with a virtual reality (VR) headset. The effort is designed to allow users to experience non-Euclidean spaces in which parallel lines diverge (hyperbolic space) that can be difficult to fully imagine with purely mathematical considerations. The research was recently part of the News in Focus in Nature. Find out more here.

Soft Matter Incubator (SMI) researchers have created water-filled particles known as microgels within robust polymer networks made of natural fibrin. In a remarkably dynamic process, the microgels self-assemble into three-dimensional tunnel-like structures that could allow repair cells to migrate through the polymer network to begin the healing process.
