The project Microflusa aims to develop a set of revolutionary colloidal materials at an industrial scale using a one-of-a-kind microfluidic system. Via its microchannels, clusters of droplets turn into well-defined configurations via the systems’ new hydrodynamic mechanism. They are doing experiments in order to understand the key ingredients needed to build optimal building blocks. Moreover, they are also doing simulations and other physical experiments to understand the behaviour of these colloidal clusters.
FEMTOTERABYTE aims to develop a magnetic storage technology to make the hard-drives about 100 times smaller and 10 000 times faster than those we use today. For this it envisions an entirely new memory unit for the computer data storage. Such units would be just a few nanometers in size and will be operated with short pulses of visible light for writing and reading the information.
