Dutch Materials 2016
Programme (Pdf file)
On Thursday 13 October 2016, the 4TU.HTM community with about 60 senior and junior researchers in the field of materials science and engineering from TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, UTwente and WUR, gathered in Utrecht (Jaarbeurs). The programme consisted of two lecture sessions and a poster session.
Prof.dr.ir. Jilt Sietsma (TU Delft), the scientific director of 4TU.HTM, welcomed the audience and started the day introducing the goals and ambitions of the 4TU.HTM research centre again, in particular to the new colleagues from Wageningen. One of the biggest aims is to collaborate, also with Wageningen.

Other posters were presented as well: Poster titles Dutch Materials 2016 (Pdf file)
Poster titles 'New Horizons in Designer Materials'
- Dr. Priscilla Brandão Silva (TU/e): The fascinating dynamics of acoustic metamaterials with nonlinear local resonators (4TU.HTM project 'Metamaterials with tunable dynamical properties')
The work by Priscilla Brandão Silva (TU/e) “shows that acoustic metamaterials with nonlinear local resonant inclusions may possess superb features, such as: tunability, multistability and nonreciprocity, and thus have potential applications in surface acoustic wave sensors, acoustic imaging, energy harvesting, and structural health monitoring.”
Priscilla Brandão Silva is discussing her poster with TU/e colleague Marc Geers.
- Dr. Maciek Kopeć (UT): Towards Advanced, 3-Dimensional Materials Bottom-Up, from Polymer Decorated Nano- and Microstructures
Maciek Kopeć introduces his poster.
- Dr. Danqing Liu (TU/e): Morphing surfaces in ordered polymer networks (4TU.HTM project 'Communicating Surfaces')
Poster Danqing Liu (Pdf file)
Danqing Liu introduces her poster.
- Dr. Joe Patterson (TU/e): Understanding structure formation in hierarchical hybrid materials through in situ liquid phase microscopies
Joe Patterson and his interactive poster presentation (including movies).
- Dr. René Poelma (TU Delft): Characterization and multi-scale modelling of nanofoam materials for qubit integration at cryogenic temperatures (4TU.HTM project 'Superconducting Carbon Nanotubes composite as Vertical Interconnect for Qubit Integration at Cryogenic Temperature')
“The porous nature of carbon nanotube array microstructures gives us the unique opportunity to tailor material properties and functionality by the infiltration and deposition of superconducting nanoscale conformal coatings.”
René Poelma introduces his poster.
- Dr. Nicholas B. Tito (TU/e): Cell targeting and switch-like surface binding with multivalent particles (4TU.HTM project 'Reversible Crosslinking')
Nick Tito (TU/e) "uses theory and simulation to discover microscopic design rules for new materials, recently focusing on "multivalent" interactions - those mediated by many ligand-receptor bonds - and how they lead to superselective binding on biological or artificial surfaces."
Poster presented by Nick Tito.
