Research Area 3. Pathways to Complex Particle Systems

COMPASS is developing simple pathways to complex particle systems by exploiting emergence, self-assembly and critical phenomena in communities of interacting polydisperse particles. We are assessing their properties and quantify complexity measures by utilizing the approaches developed in Research Areas 1 and 2. Such particle systems will greatly expand the  spectrum of materials for additive manufacturing and 3D printing.
