Nanoscale amorphous precursors and their phase transitions in diverse biominerals

Académique ou spécialiste Seminar

Pupa Gilbert and her team investigate the formation of biominerals including their structure and composition using sophisticated characterization techniques. For example, they study the formation of CaCO3 in nacre using a polarization-dependent imaging contrast mapping method. These insights might enable establishing new bio-inspired synthesis routes that offer a superior control over the structure and properties of synthetic CaCO3-based materials.
