Functional Polymeric Systems (FPS)
The activity of the FPS group focuses on the micro and nanostructuring of polymers and liquid crystals in the search of novel functional polymeric systems of interest in different application fields such as Biomedicine or Photonics. The preparation of polymeric systems (microparticles, thin films, microstructures,..) with controlled morphology and functionality that confers to the materials novel or improved properties is achieved by using liquid crystal or block copolymer self-organization and advanced lithography techniques and additive micromanufacturing techniques, such as inkjet printing.

Given the multidisciplinary and applied nature of the Research carried out, the group, composed primarily by physicist, collaborates with chemists, biochemists, engineers and theoreticians both in academia and industry.
