Juliane Simmchen’s lab focusses on sysnthesis and characterization of active colloidal materials and the physical principles governing their interactions. She constructs (bio)-micromotors from innovative material combinations to confer activity to them, but also investigate information transport as well as communication strategies on both, the individual particle level and in swarms. This highly multidisciplinary research area bridges chemistry, surface science, (bio)-physics and engineering and bears potential to contribute to thriving research fields such as drug delivery, the energy supply of microscale machining and environmental remediation.
