Max Planck Twente Center for Complex Fluid Dynamics
From colloidal fluids to functional materials
Max Planck-University of Twente Center is a research network dedicated to the complexities of fluid dynamics. The fundamental knowledge in this interdisciplinary topic is relevant for numerous fields, such as sustainable energy, medical lab-on-a-chip systems or climate. The focus of the Butt group within the Max Planck Twente Center is on understanding the drying dynamics of multiphase fluids containing colloids, which opens new routes to produce hierarchically structured materials such as supraparticles. These materials open new perspectives e.g. in the field of catalysis.
