Several research lines of the IMDEA Materials Institute will contribute to building the economy of the future

In an article that highlights the relevance of the advanced materials sector in the economy of the future, the journal ABC includes among others different research lines developed at the IMDEA Materials Institute: the substitution of graphite in batteries by silicon nanowires which is giving its first steps towards industrialization through Floatech (IMDEA Materials’ spin off), the 3D printing of shape memory alloys or the development of bioresorbable implants.

The article also talks about developments of other research institutions going from metamaterials, high precision lenses, military applications, semiconductors, self-healing cement and plastics, bio-concrete, materials that can capture selectively NO2 or CO2, nanomaterials for health applications and many others.
