CellColor – Fabricating cellulose nanocomposites for structural coloration
The aim of the project is to develop original, environmentally friendly, nano-structured surfaces and coatings with engineered optical functionality for coloration and reflection of light.
Start date: 2017-10-01
End date: 2020-10-01
The surfaces and coatings will be fabricated from cost effective natural materials like cellulose, and will allow for environmentally friendly energy control and improved energy efficiency, thus providing innovative technology for future design or architecture, beyond the lifetime of the project.
Start: October 1, 2017 Duration: 3 years
